August Supper Club and other August events at Heather Ridge Farm

Written By Editor on 8/2/17 | 8/2/17

Preston Hollow, NY –
With the farm stands full of great produce, and the fields and forests ripe for foraging, the monthly Supper Club will celebrate the abundance of the season on Saturday, August 12. Supper Club, a five course tasting dinner at Heather Ridge Farm, starts at 7pm, and advance reservations are necessary. Reservations must be secured with a credit card, and cost $75 per person.

The dinners have been held once or twice a month all year.  From June through September Supper Club dinners are held outdoors on the farm, weather permitting.  In the cooler months, dinner is in the solar-powered 1820s farmhouse. Chef Rob Handel creates imaginative menus with the meat and poultry raised at Heather Ridge Farm, combined with items Rob had foraged, as well as produce and dairy products from other regional farms.

On Sunday, August 13, the Second Sunday Session will be held 12-2 hosted by fiddlers Hilary Schrauf and Bernie Neumann. The Second Sunday Session is an opportunity for traditional Irish, Old Time, Cape Breton, and Scottish musicians to get together and share a few tunes in a cozy atmosphere. Come out and join in a few tunes, or sit back and enjoy the music and good food!

The month ends with a Fried Chicken Picnic on Saturday August 26, starting at 6pm. 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. All are welcome but reservations are still appreciated. The picnic is served buffet style, with chicken being fried fresh continually until 8pm, accompanied by sides crafted from locally grown items.

Menus to be posted on Please call 518-239-6234 for reservations. In the farm store, fresh and frozen products of the farm are available at all events.
