All CSA members are invited to our on-farm Festivals!
Corn Boil - August 5
Come out to our 24th annual sweet corn celebration. Spending an afternoon with our CSA community eating delicious sweet corn and enjoying a fantastic pot luck!
It’s a picnic! It's a corn eating party! Bring your family out to the farm for our 24th annual sweet corn celebration. Come meet your farmers and other CSA members & enjoy an afternoon on your farm.
When: Sunday, August 5th - (No rain date.)
Time: 3:00 - 3:30 for corn picking
4:00 (or so) the potluck begins
Who: You, your family & friends (Please leave your dogs at home; true for all farm events).
What to bring: A large dish to share for the potluck meal, your own beverages, plates, cups & utensils, lawn chair or blanket, a smile & a great hunger for mouth-watering freshly picked sweet corn.
The Corn Pick: The big happening at the Corn Boil is of course harvesting sweet corn. All of the corn we pick will be boiled in kettles and eaten as you sit on the lawn and gaze over the beautiful valley (this is not a U-pick; all corn gets eaten at the party). The corn field is a short walk from our yard where the eating takes place. If you want to be part of the corn pick, come no later than 3:30. If you’ve never harvested sweet corn, don’t come too late; it is the highlight of the day.
What to bring home: Everything that you bring. We ask that you bring home your trash and recycling. Corn cobs get composted.
Parking Your Car: Park on the road. Please be sure that all four tires are off the pavement. BE CAREFULL when parking and walking on the road. The speed limit is 55 mph but local drivers are known to go much faster! You can drop off your stuff and passengers and then park the car.
