Bring the family out for a day at the farm, Singer Farm Naturals(SFN) that is. Located at 6730 Lake Road in Appleton, SFN is most noted for their cherry juice concentrate and a multitude of organic garlic varieties.
Originally scheduled during a disappointing cherry u-pick season, the cookout was moved to August to honor two notable crops harvested this time of year; peaches and garlic! The cookout begins at 12pm and goes until about 5pm or until the food runs out.
Programming throughout the day includes a number of informative talks, free to the public. The talks highlight what the farm is all about; organic, eco-friendly and sustainable. The schedule of talks is below:
- 1pm: Garlic Talk by Tom Szulist – co-proprietor of SFN
- 2pm: Wind Turbine Talk and Tour by Niagara Wind
- 3pm: Solar Talk and Tour by Tom Szulist
- 4pm: Challenging Year of Fruit by Jim Bittner – Manager of Singer Farms
The cookout will feature the following menu which includes vegetarian options:
- Pulled Pork Sandwich
- Roasted Vegetable Pasta Salad (vegetarian entree)
- Cole Slaw
- Baked Beans
- Roasted Corn-on-the-Cob
- Peach Cobbler (dessert)
The food is served on a first-come-first-serve basis. The cost of an adult plate which includes one entrée and 2 sides is $12 plus tax. A child’s portion is $8 plus tax. The roasted corn-on-the-cob is $2.50.
Proceeds from this event benefit Field & Fork Network a local non-profit organization dedicated to building a thriving local food system in WNY.
