Fire Feast on the Farm
Tuesday, July 19, 5:30 – 10 pm Pitney Meadows Community Farm
223 West Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
After being put on pause due to the COVID pandemic, Pitney Meadows Community Farm’s local-centric event returns in Summer 2022. One of Saratoga’s most unique events features an extraordinary 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.
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 located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, NY. It 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 Farm offers a broad array of educational and recreational opportunities to engage with the land and our community, and champions healthy food production and access. The organization is funded by grants and hundreds of generous community members who share a vision of food justice, agricultural education, recreation, and community.
Guests will watch as local chefs cook a delicious 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 from Soul Session featuring “Soulist” Garland Nelson, a silent auction, hayrides through our fields, and a s’mores bonfire to end the evening await you!
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.
“Pitney Meadows has grown so much since the last time we hosted Fire Feast. This year, our goal is to feature all that we have accomplished in the last few years and highlight our chef and farm partners. We also want to host a really fun celebration where guests can enjoy great food and each other’s company,” said event chair, Emily Rapp Eddy.
