Fried Chicken Summer Party at Heather Ridge Farm

Written By Editor on 7/4/17 | 7/4/17

Saturday, July 22, 4-7pm

Preston Hollow, NY – Celebrate the middle of summer with fried chicken, live music and beer! Sounds like a party happening Saturday, July 22 at Heather Ridge Farm, starting with an optional farm tour at 3pm, and food and beverages at 4pm.

Heather Ridge Farm is a livestock and poultry farm high in the hills, with panoramic views of the Catskill Mountains. In this setting, the Bees Knees Café serves up the best fried chicken at shaded picnic tables as well as tables under a tent! The all-you-can-eat buffet will start at 4 with gluten free fried chicken, seasonal sides, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages included in the price of $24/adult.  Kids under 15 pay their age.  Live music starts at 5 with Jumbo Bungalow, the eclectic sounds of a ukelele band, as fun and comforting as an oversized vintage vacation cottage, led by Carmen Borgia. Helderberg Brewery, of nearby Rensselaerville, NY, will be selling their locally brewed beers to accompany the buffet.

The fried chicken is a culmination of a three day long process that starts with a koji marinade and wraps up with a dusting in chef Rob Handel’s secret blend of spices and gluten free flours. The Fried Chicken Summer Party is by reservation only, so please reserve by Wednesday, July 19 to guarantee a spot. The picnic is served buffet style, with chicken being fried fresh continually until 7pm, accompanied by sides crafted from locally grown items. Full menu to be posted on Please call 518-239-6234 for reservations.

In the farm store, fresh pastured chicken will be available for you to take home for your own barbeques, as well as the full stock of beef, pork, lamb, goat and other products.
