Summer’s just around the corner and local farmers are planting like crazy this time of year. Luckily, there are lots of heirloom seeds going into the ground in preparation for our third annual, on-farm barbeque extravaganza, aka Farm-a-Q!

This year we are hosted by one of the oldest continuously farmed properties in the country, Emery Farm. You have probably driven by the farm stand on Route 4 many times, perhaps even stopped in to pick some berries or buy a pumpkin in the fall. Recently, cattle from Miles Smith Farm have been grazing on the property and at Farm-a-Q we’ll get a tour of the “back 40” that you don’t see from the road.  The day will feature tastings, demonstrations, kids activities, a farm tour, hay rides and best of all, the amazing locally grown, multi-course picnic-friendly meal prepared by our even more amazing local chefs!

This year we look forward to the culinary creations of our old favorites and some new comers as well. Here’s a short list of who will be grillin’ and baking for you on the 29th.

This year’s participating restaurants include another incredible line up:

Black Trumpet Bistro, Black Birch, Beach Pea Baking Company, Buttermilk Baking Company, Cava, Demeter’s, The District, Joinery,The Kitchen on Islington, Moxy, When Pigs Fly, Anjou and Juice Burger.

Tickets are on sale here!
