Who doesn’t love al fresco dining? It’s even more fun when the setting is a beautiful, family-owned farm. Sport Hill Farm in Easton has an irresistible array of farm events scheduled for this spring and summer, including several farm-to-table events with local chefs and cooking instructors. Book early because these events sell out quickly. Last summer I attended a “meet me at the farm” luncheon and am looking forward to returning this year.
From Patti Popp, owner of Sport Hill Farm:
The tentative spring 2010 grand re-opening for Sport Hill Farm will be the weekend of May 22 & 23rd. Will let you know the details as we get closer to the date & see how construction of our new barn is progressing!!
