After several months of construction, one of Yates County’s newest businesses — Tabora Farm & Winery — was enthusiastically welcomed to the community at a soft opening Nov. 25. Since then, word is spreading about the freshly prepared deli and bakery items that can now be found at the countryside corners.
And while it’s a new business, its roots reach back to early fruit businesses of the area, and farm family recipes using simple, fresh ingredients.
Located at the corner of Lakemont-Himrod and Dundee-Lakemont Roads, the main building is a former fruit packing barn that underwent an extensive renovation to house a deli, bakery, and market. There, owners Roger and Jane Eatherton prepare a wide variety of baked goods, soups, sandwiches, quiches, entrees, salads, and desserts. The deli’s menu also includes trays of appetizers and casseroles that can feed a crowd.
