Farm Fresh Meals are colorful and deliciousSeptember is almost here…and while that connotes many things – harvest, preservation, weeding – it also means that another round of community food events is about to begin.  Yes, it’s that time again: the beginning of a month means First Sunday Farm Feast Breakfast & Open House and First Friday Pizza & a Movie Night.  (And just a reminder – Final Friday is Potluck/Open Mic Night!)

These events define our weeks and are the texture of our months.  Each gathering is a celebration of neighbors and friends, an opportunity to showcase seasonal fare and homegrown taste.  Farm-fresh deliciousness and permaculture production define our food philosophy, while these monthly breakfasts, pizza nights, and potluck gatherings build our community through full plates and all-you-should-eat spreads. 

Abundance is beautiful in the camaraderie of fine company.  It is our salute to an agricultural ethic, and homage to local food flavor.  What a joy to share a meal in the very place where the ingredients are grown, at a table with those who grew it, knowing the hands that prepared it.  Health, well-being, and vitality are all offered in our farm-fresh meals. 

And this is your invitation to join us!  D Acres’ First Sunday Farm Feast Breakfast & Open House is this coming Sunday, September 2 (always the first Sunday of every month, all year long, year after year).  A convivial atmosphere of fun and neighborliness, you have your choice of eggs, pancakes, sausage, greens, and potatoes (except in summer).  Second and thirds are encouraged!  All we ask is a donation, $5-15 sliding scale donation, whatever you are comfortable with.  Breakfast is served 10am-1pm; 1-3pm is a farm tour we’d love to take you on – free!  Check out our new piglets, the beautiful flowers, the packed gardens, and the quiet of the woods.  There’s something for everybody.

Farm Feast is barely a memory when First Friday Pizza & a Movie Night is here – this month it’s Friday, Sept 7 (always the first Friday of every month, all year long, year after year).  A fun, relaxing, and delicious way to end the week.  We spend the afternoon making pizza, gathering fresh toppings from the gardens, grating cheese from nearby Bunten Farmhouse Kitchen, then baking the final product as the evening descends - hot in our wood-fired cob oven!  Dinner begins at 6pm, and again all we ask is a sliding-scale donation $5-15 for all-you-should-eat slices!  Pizza is then followed by a film screening at 7:30pm, free!  Titles are different every month, please check out our website www.dacres.org for each month’s screening. 

As fall descends, slow down from summer and put us on your calendar!  We can’t wait to see you at the farm.  Join us at the table for delicious, farm-fresh, seasonal fare.  You won’t be disappointed.
