Community Food events

September 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.
