Our First Llamas Love Stars Star Employee
"I love giving people something they will truly enjoy".
Peter works at our restaurant Henry's at the Farm. He works part time as a server which is surprising in itself as he has an extremely busy life away from Buttermilk Falls! His juggling act doesn't take away from his genuine care for service. He enjoys what he does, and it shows
Life Outside of Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa & Henry's
Peter, like many that find themselves in the Restaurant & Hospitality Industry, doesn't consider this his 'Day Job'. Peter is also an Independent Film maker. Peter is also an Independent Film maker. He made a documentary about boys rite of passage called "Tending Fires" and he's currently making a comic webseries called "Pirate Birthday Party". He was a writers' assistant for 96 episodes on the Emmy Award winning show "Frasier." He has led wilderness programs for kids in the Shawangunks for Wild Earth and does web marketing & video for local businesses. Yet, it doesn't take away from his love of the Hospitality Industry. When asked what brought him to this field Peter says "I like waiting tables. It makes me happy to do a job that brings something to the guests that they really enjoy. I'm not 'selling' them something they don't want to have. People enjoy being here (at Henry's). It offers great food, a beautiful location and is a great place to work". Outside of work, Peter enjoys his time with his wife & two children, gardening and landscaping. His favorite part of working at Henry's at the Farm at Buttermilk Falls is the Landscaping and Grounds. He enjoys speaking with Dawn, our Farm & Grounds Manager on advice for what will thrive in his own garden. He takes her knowledge of the native plant life and incorporates it to his own landscaping at home in New Paltz.
