Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Buy Fresh Buy Local® Bucks County have announced the 2021 series of popular farm evenings that introduce consumers to the local small-scale producers who put the freshest foods onto our tables via direct sales, community-supported agriculture operations (CSAs), farmers markets, farm stands, and other venues. The farm evenings include an optional family picnic and socially distanced tour of the farm. There will be no potluck meal this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In lieu of the potlucks, families and small groups are invited to enjoy a picnic meal at 6:00pm on the farm. Please bring your own meal, drinks, plates, cutlery and seating. The evening’s farm tour will begin promptly at 7:00pm. This educational and entertaining event is appropriate for children of all ages who are under an adult’s supervision. Please wear appropriate footwear for the farm. Facemasks are required for the tour and social distancing of at least six feet is requested for everyone’s safety.
