Over the years, The Farmers Dinner has curated and executed more than 100 farm-to-table events across New England, serving over 20,000 patrons and contributing over $230,000 to support local farms.

In tandem with his role at The Farmers Dinner, Keith serves as the co-owner of From The Field Catering and assumes the position of Chef/Owner at Aatma: An Exploration of Indian Cuisine.

Specializing in catering weddings and other special events, the company upholds a steadfast commitment to supporting local farms. Employing a meticulous farm-to-table approach, patrons can be assured that each bite is an embodiment of the natural flavors inherent in the ingredients. From The Field actively endeavors to establish a profound connection between customers and the origin of their sustenance, thereby celebrating the artistry of farm-to-table dining.

Aatma represents a distinctive pop-up dining experience that delves into the intricacies of regional Indian cuisine. Fueled by a profound passion for the culinary and cultural nuances of the Indian subcontinent, Keith has honed his skills through extensive research and collaboration with esteemed figures such as Dr. Kurush Dalal and celebrity chefs like Maneet Chauhan and James Beard Award Winner Chintan Pandya. The result is an unparalleled and highly sought-after pop-up dining experience that showcases Keith's expanded knowledge and culinary prowess.
