DRIVE-THRU Local Food & BBQ Festival 5/22-23

Local Food & BBQ for our FINAL Spring Drive-Thru Festival

7 FARMS UNITE FOR OUR LAST SPRING FESTIVAL

Working together to bring you the “Backyard Grill & Party Box”

What a great way to meet your neighbors and make new friends in agriculture. A farm will keep one busy enough that it takes a shock to the system to get you to pause and take stock.

Dumping milk. Plowing under veggies. Barn weddings cancelled. This crisis has us all trying something new and reaching out to each other for support.

That brings us to our FINAL Spring Festival we’re calling the “Local Food & BBQ Drive-Thru.” We reached out yet again and partnered with 7 farms to bring you good home cookin’, fresh produce, and local food for your Memorial Day weekend.

Meet the Farmers

GK Wilt Farms for Local Beef, New Park, PA (pictured here) – Quick-frozen, local beef processed at Godfrey’s USDA certified butcher shop in Loganville becomes quarter-pounder burger patties for your grill. 

Country View Creamery, Brogue, PA – On-site dairy processing makes delicious raw-milk, aged cheeses.

Maple Lawn Farms & Maple Lawn Winery, New Park, PA – Grab pies, dumplings, cookies, and a selection of wines & hard cider for your Memorial Day weekend.

Maple Lawn Farms Sunflower & Peaches Weekend

Who:

Maple Lawn Farms, Maple Lawn Winery & Maize Quest Corn Maze & Fun Park

What:

The farmers at Maple Lawn Farms planted 5-acres, or approximately 5 football fields of sunflowers. In one section, it’s planted full of the classic yellow sunflowers that will mature at about 5 feet tall. In another 2 acres, visitors get to see 10-12 different varieties that display the wide spectrum of sizes and colors in ornamental sunflowers.

Why:

“Sunflowers are symbols of positive thoughts, feelings and create a happy atmosphere,” says Hugh McPherson, Maize Quest’s Mazemaster. “They connect with people, and we want people to connect with farming on a personal level.”

General Public Admission: Sat 10AM-6PM, Sun 1PM-5PM

Last ticket allowed ONE HOUR before closing. Fields closed at listed hours.

Memorial Day Weekend Wine Restocking Sale – Saturday May 27, 12PM-5PM + Update from the Orchards

 

 

 

Wine-wine-tasting-room

Farm, Fruit, Wine & Winery Update + Exclusive Wine Sale May 27

 

SAVE 10% on Everything in the Tasting Room as we restock for the season.

We’ve missed you! Being a seasonal winery makes for some long, lonely times between seeing our favorite people – YOU!

So, as we were restocking wine on the winery shelves with our new Apple-Riesling Blended Wine and Cherry Infusion, a Brandy-Fortified Wine, we thought, why not make it a party?!

This Saturday, May 27 from 12PM-5PM is the ONLY time we’ll be open for tastings and wine sales in May, then we reopen for the season June 17, 2017. 

So what have we been doing over the winter? Work never stops at the farm. Our fruit trees have been spared from the frosty weather, including that scary late frost. We are very thankful as our peaches were in full bloom during the coldest days.

WGAL8 came out to interview Dad before and after the coldest days – Big News on the farm!

IMG_1471 peach-blossoms-to-wine

Why cold is bad. Any temps below 30 degrees F can essentially make the natural moisture in the blooms turn to ice and destroy the delicate cell structures in the blossom. Once the blossoms freeze – they won’t produce fruit for the entire season.

Pruning delayed. In fact, we were ahead on pruning the old wood out of the trees, but the cold temps require that you don’t prune, because pruning stimulates growth. We didn’t want to stimulate growth then have the new, soft tissues be exposed to cold.

What’s that have to do with wine? Our Peach Blossom Wine is 100% our fruit! Without peaches, we could have made the wine, but we’d have had to use someone else peaches. Not that other growers don’t do a good job, we just like to be in control of the quality from start to finish – We’re finicky that way 🙂

Swing in and restock – join the fun and enjoy the Summer Flavors a little early.

Hugh, one of the Winemakers at Maple Lawn Winery
