Pitney Meadows: Fire Feast on the Farm July 19

SARATOGA SPRINGS — After being put on pause due to the COVID pandemic, Pitney Meadows Community Farm’s local-centric event returns in Summer 2022. 

The event features a line-up of local farm-to-table chefs cooking over open-fire pits, while sourcing ingredients from local producers and the Pitney Meadows’ farm fields. The farm-to-table event helps raise funds for Pitney Meadow’s most important initiatives. 

Guests will watch as local chefs cook a seasonally inspired, locally sourced, and carefully curated meal over our open fire pits, meander through our breathtaking Community Gardens while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and taking in the sites of the Farmscape at dusk. Live music will be performed by Soul Session featuring “Soulist” Garland Nelson, and the day includes a silent auction, hayrides through the fields, and a s’mores bonfire to end the evening.

Guest chefs include Kevin London of Farmhouse Food and local chefs Michele Hunter, Laurel Barkan, Michael Blake, and Dan Spitz. Cocktails will be crafted by Hamlet & Ghost, while beer will be provided by local favorite Druthers Brewing Company. Other libations provided by Halyard Brewing Company and Old Tavern Farm Winery.

Founded as a non-profit in 2016 after being purchased to be protected in perpetuity as conserved agricultural lands, Pitney Meadows is a 166-acre working community farm, and includes a 15-acre mixed vegetable, herb and flower farm with two greenhouses, community garden, and children’s greenhouse that includes an Exploration Garden. The event takes place 5:30 -10 p.m. on July 19. 

Pitney Meadows Community Farm is located at 223 West Ave., Saratoga Springs. Go to: www.pitneymeadowscommunityfarm.org/fire-feast.
