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! We have wild foraged foods, heritage breed chickens, ducks, pigs and beef, fish from our waters, fresh seasonal berries, and the first heirloom veggies of summer, all in the hands of our region’s most talented chefs – so what are you waiting for, it’s time to get your tickets!


This year we are hosted by one of the oldest continuously farmed properties in the country, Emery Farm. Their farm stand on Route 4 is well known to locals and visitors, selling a variety of produce, meats and other local products. They are well known for their berry -picking and fall hay rides. Cattle from Miles Smith Farm are now 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, hay rides and best of all, the amazing locally grown, picnic-style meal prepared by our even more amazing local chefs!
