Fermenting at the Farm
Thursday, August 24, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Come and learn healthy ways to store and use up your abundance of local veggies from the farm! Expert fermenter, Sara Servin, will be taking a sample of veggies from the farm and teaching attendees how to preserve them using salt and yeast fermentation methods. Learn all about how you can preserve your fresh food to use later in the year and, at the same time, improve your health by creating natural probiotic cultures that encourage digestive health. There is a suggested donation of $10/person and each individual will bring home something to ferment from the class.
2017 Massaro’s Dinner on the Farm
Massaro Community Farm will host its Annual Dinner on the Farm on Sunday, September 3 from 4:30-9:00pm. This celebration features an all-inclusive, all-local meal prepared by award winning Chef Denise Appel, incorporating meat, cheese, breads, brews and, of course, farm vegetables. Guests dine amid the fields and flowers of historic Massaro Farm, a former family dairy farm. Admittance includes a farm tour with Farmer Steve Munno, open bar, hors d’oeuvres interactive exhibits, and silent auction. Proceeds support the farm’s commitment to farm-based education and the thousands of pounds of produce we donate each season to those in need. Cost is $150 per person. We look forward to seeing you at the farm!
