Joshua Schiff has served as the Farm Manager for Chatham Bars Inn’s eight-acre farm since 2014. During that time, he has been an integral part of developing the resort’s robust farm-to-table dining program, bringing creative vision to the farm that supplies the resort with all its produce. The resort’s current program, which highlights the Cape’s bountiful natural harvest is entirely the brain-child of Joshua, as he is credited with creating the program from scratch. In his role, he not only shares his expertise with guests but also the local community, where he teaches farm workshops and manages a farm program that allows locals to benefit from the high-quality produce grown at the farm.
Prior to Chatham Bars Inn, Joshua worked at Love Apple Farm, the exclusive kitchen-garden for Chef David Kinch’s Michelin starred Manresa restaurant in Los Gatos, CA. In addition, he founded New Traditions Farm, a 125 member CSA farm specializing in heirloom vegetables and heritage poultry. As an advocate for the sustainable farming and local food movement, Joshua is bringing his vision to life with the help of Executive Chef Anthony Cole and the whole Chatham Bars Inn culinary team.
