August on the Farm

We’re hosting another summer Burger Night this Tuesday, August 22 and we sure hope to see you there! Old Country Road will be playing country bluegrass on the porch and on the menu will be seasonal specials: the Teriyaki Peach Burger, the Southwest Burger, and the SassSquash amongst other Burger Night classics. The grill is on 5-7pm and we’ll be open until 8pm. Full event details are here.

There’s plenty of our own fresh, frozen beef in stock for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend and brisket for Rosh Hashanah too. Now is the time to place beef orders for the holidays if you are looking for a particular cut of beef or perhaps a hind quarter or half steer. And, new to the freezer section: local lamb!
