Can I just wax poetic about loaded baked potatoes for a minute?
Okay, you said no, but I'm going to do it anyway. Sorry.
There's no food that says sweet summer nights to me more than a loaded baked potato in a cardboard boat. Grab it from a food truck and then dish up your toppings at the condiment station. Eat it with a spork (or eventually your fingers because the spork would always break) while walking through the lights and the noise and the carnival color. Just pure deliciousness in the simplest of forms.
Now, baked potatoes are saying sweet fall days because they are making their debut at the farm this season. And I am so excited because I didn't think fall could get better...but it did. Good hearty potatoes with good hearty toppings. I'll be first in line to get mine!
This is just your average premium-selected, dry-rubbed-in-a-special-blend-of-herbs-and-spices, and slow-smoked-for-eight-hours brisket sandwich that you can find pretty much everywhere.
That's a lie. This brisket is pretty special, and you can get it here on the farm this fall season. You don't even need the sauces. They're really just for show.
They are locally sourced. They are hand cut, hand breaded, and then hand deep-fried (just kidding...we do that last step with a tongs).
And then they are served up to you new this fall season: chicken strips!
Sure these are for kids. But more importantly, YES, it's socially acceptable to order off the kid's menu here at the farm.
For a lot of this off-season, Kyle and his food crew have been experimenting in the kitchen. The fruits of that labor are four delicious food and drink options that are new for fall season! And we're going to be featuring them right here on the blog. AND if you pop on over to our Facebook page, you could win a free meal or two...or in this case, a free drink!
Kyle's been making fresh-squeezed lemonade for Night on the Square and a lot of other events off the farm, but this year we're offering it during fall season. It'll be available in the Snack Shack, reopening this fall season in the comeback story of the year (for us at least...more on that in a few weeks). Chat with Judy or me (cause I'll be there on weekends sucking on lemon rinds and stealing donuts) while you watch us make this refreshing and delicious drink! And enjoy!
In the last year, we've been busy...building the venue of your dreams!
Vesperman Farms is very excited to announce that in 2016, we will be booking weddings and events in our new barn! Finished just before the fall season last year, the new barn has all the rustic charm you're looking for, with updated facilities (including permanent restrooms and a chef's kitchen) and a beautiful farm backdrop for your special day! To learn more about booking your wedding, visit our wedding or events sites. But before you do, check out the rest of this post and our photo galleries to learn all that's new with Vesperman Farms!
The barn began taking shape last June. We broke ground on June 8. Every day, it inched closer to reality!
Plumbing and wiring were especially intricate, but the awesome bathrooms and kitchen were worth the work!
We held our first event on September 13 for the hospital. We opened five days later for the fall season. There was a lot more work to be done, but everyone had a great time in the barn!
We've been busy this winter finishing the inside, insulating and wiring the place for lights and sound! We have a ways more to go--check back with us next month for the finished space! We're so excited to show it to you, we'll be posting photos the second after the last decoration is hung!
From the drawing board to the real deal, we're excited for you to host your events here at Vesperman Farms!
Fun on the farm...in blog form!
