We are celebrating the bounty of the season, and our 114 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, with eight courses of heavy appetizers and dessert. Chef Monique Ruvolo's (Above & Beyond Catering, Independent Brewing Company) vegetarian menu highlights our tomatoes and other farm fresh products.

Wigle Whiskey is creating two custom cocktails, also featuring heirloom tomatoes and other farm products, and Hitchhiker is serving their Trial By Fire Farmhouse Saison as well as a specialty cask brew involving farm ingredients. Both Wigle and Hitchhiker will be on hand to chat with guests about their products and processes.

Roam the farm and visit with our goats, chickens and ducks while enjoying some delicious farm-fresh food, local spirits and beers. Farmer Tara will talk with guests about her experiences at the international Slow Food festival Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto in Turin, Italy last fall, which she attended with the generosity and support of Slow Food Pittsburgh.
