Powisset Happenins!

It's been a while since I have filled you in on what is going on at Powisset Farm! There has been so much, that it is hard to keep up!

First of all, thank you to all who came out on Memorial Day for Springfest! Despite the chilly temps, we all had a blast. A couple of our favorite activities were the pie-eating contest (right) and the Powisset Cafe (left)! For those of you who also enjoyed the Powisset Cafe, know that it will become a regular thing this summer so stay tuned for details. We are still looking to hire a Manager as well as some counter and food prep help. If you know someone who is interested in working at the Cafe every other Saturday I'd love to hear from you (nnacamuli@thetrustees.org). Lastly, in addition to hosting a Spring Festival, this year on September 16th we will be holding a Harvest Festival so mark your calendars!
What's to Come? Well, besides the excitement of the CSA and farm stand opening on Tuesday(!), below are just a few of our upcoming events and programs!

Sunday, June 18th, 11-1pm: Fathers Day Bluegrass BBQ: Join us as we celebrate dad by enjoying food catered by Blue Ribbon BBQ, music by the Railroad House Band, lawn games, animals and much more! Beer (provided by Jack's Abby Brewery) and wine will be available for purchase. Registration will close on Thursday so sign up today!

Saturday, June 24th, 10-12pm: Strawberry Shortcake: From the Fields to the Kitchen: This is our 3rd annual strawberry shortcake class and it is always a sell out. While we won't be able to pick strawberries due to the timing, we will be collecting eggs (for the biscuit wash) and mint to adorn the shortcake! 

Friday, June 30th, 6-8pm: Friday Farm Dinner: We are excited for our first farm dinner of the season! Chef Didi Emmons will be cooking up a storm using seasonal produce from the farm and we will enjoy music by the Railroad House Band, beer from Castle Island Brewing, lawn games, and the scenic view of the farm at sunset. Come early (at 5:30pm) for a farm tour with one of our farm staff! We will be holding Friday Farm Dinners every other Friday through September.

We hope to see you at one or all of these events!
