Join us for our “Summer Kick-Off” event

Strawberries will be front and center on Saturday, June 23rd, at our “Summer Kick-Off” event. The free event which will run from 10 am to 3 pm will feature a sampling of foods made from strawberries as well as foods that pair well with strawberries, a pickle tasting, and several free workshops.

As strawberry season lasts only a short time, jam making has become a time-honored way of preserving their flavor to enjoy later in the year. Starting at 10 am, Ann Hamilton, of UNH Cooperative Extension, will present a free workshop on how to turn fresh berries into jam. The workshop runs approximately 90 minutes and no pre-registration is needed.

A “Summer Seafood” demonstration with Sal Bramante, of Sal’s Fresh Seafood, and Kali Whitehouse, who graduated from Johnson & Wales and works in our farm kitchen, will start at noon. Attendees will get tips on how to make summer seafood dishes shine this summer as well as hints as to what may be on the menu for our annual “surf and field” farm to table dinner in August. This free event starts at noon and ends at 2 pm. Come for the entire demonstration or just part of it!

Since farming and gardening would not be possible without bees, we’ve invited Jude Hamel, executive director of Prescott Farm and an avid beekeeper, to present a fun, informative and free workshop about bees and other pollinators. This free workshop starts at 2 pm and lasts approximately one hour.

In addition to the workshops, throughout the day there will be a sampling of strawberry related items including items from our farm bakery. Foods from our farm kitchen, including our new “veggie burgers” will also be sampled during the day. 

Cider Bellies will also be open and offering their seasonally inspired, as well as classic, freshly made cider doughnuts.
