Help Our Team & Community

Hello Neighbors,

On March 15, 2020, we closed our dining room and suspended all catering and event service. Two years in, we look forward to reopening our dining room in Spring of 2022 and continue to limit the number of catering events we engage in as we navigate the community health concerns posed by COVID-19. While these measures are so critical for our community, they have had a deep and significant impact on the financial security of our team and our business.

The bakers, chefs, cooks, dishwashers and servers that make Pasture and Plenty such a special part of this community. We are grateful for your support to continue to do this work.

We graciously accept your support to share with them directly, through the link here. And, please consider buying gift certificates or meals to donate to neighbors in need, as a way to help support the business itself until we can reopen for full service.

Thank you, a million times over,

Christy McKenzie & The P&P Team

Christy (Owner):

Our ringleader, creative director, and coach, it's Christy's passion and drive that makes Pasture and Plenty so special. Having been Madison born and raised, this business is something she has been dreaming of for 20 years. Because of her, we are committed to the root idea that food should be sourced locally and be as wholesome as possible for everyone.  Christy’s favorite P&P dish is the pasta. “I love how it highlights all the local vegetables and the pesto is changing with the season.”

Jack (Executive Chef):

Nourished by time spent outside with family and friends, Jack brings a patient and hardworking attitude to P&P every day. His focus on using great technique on great ingredients is what keeps us going. A continuous learner, Jack believes any cookbook can teach you something new.

Kelly Nigl (Program Administrator):

Madison born and raised, Kelly enjoys knitting, photography and painting. Her patient and creative skills help her be the mastermind behind keeping our meal kit subscriptions organized, including the production and pack. Favorite dish? Pasta bowl. Anything with RP's Pasta is a winner in my book.”

Edward (chef):

A jack of all trades, Edward fills many roles in the kitchen at P&P.  Nourished by family, fishing, and travel, Ed’s favorite place to visit is the Amazon in Brazil.  It’s very fitting that Ed describes his cooking style as International. “I enjoy immersing myself in a region's food and discovering more about the area through its food. I am able to use this knowledge and craft to create international food and wine dinners based on a region.”  When back home, our team appreciates the new recipes he is able to share with everyone.
