At Chickahominy Falls, we’re saying so long to summer and hello to fall. With so much activity going on in and around the farm, it is safe to say we are harvesting happiness all around.
Read on for all the way to get up and autumn this month at Chickahominy Falls.
Oh. My. Gourd!
The Chickahominy Falls Cooking Club has been busy in the kitchen crafting up some delicious seasonal flavors during their cooking demos. Using fresh produce from down on our farm and creating a culinary masterpiece is a sure way to bring people together. From baba ghanoush with eggplant grown right here at home, to all the ways to dress up squash, our palettes are changing with the seasons, too.
Sharing a recipe straight from our kitchen at The Barn, here is an appetizer that celebrates the very best of the season.
Seasoned By The Season
September kicked off our inaugural Native Plate Series. Where each month, our resident Chef, Devon Hammer will create a 3-course meal for our guests, themed and paired to bring out the very best in our Woodside Farms harvest. You’ll see Chef Hammer both working hard in the kitchen and out on the farm to develop an event with authentic flavors to add a new layer of richness to life. September’s menu included Tacos al Fresco, served three unique ways 3-ways
and a tres leches dessert. There were libations for all to enjoy and even goodies to take home
Our next event will be held on Saturday, October 23rd from 11am-1pm in the Barn, so be sure to get your tickets early to celebrate the goodness of gathering.
We’ve worked hard all summer working the land and reaping the beautiful benefits of living alongside a working farm at Chickahominy Falls. Now, it’s time to celebrate the fruits of our labor at our annual Fall Festival. We will have local food trucks and live music to set the tone. Then friends and visitors can shop our Saturday Farm Stand, see live cooking demonstrations, and enter to win a FREE CSA share ($250 value) or a $25 gift card to the Farm Stand. Join us Saturday, October 30th from 11am – 2pm.
We are so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers, but truth be told, every month at Chickahominy Falls gives us reason to celebrate. A unique lifestyle that is based on health and wellness creates the perfect formula for harvesting happiness always.
