Fridays on the Farm at Hawkins Family Farm
June 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00pm on Friday, repeating until September 14, 2018
Now in its tenth season, Hawkins Family Farm is gearing up for another great summer of brick oven pizza and family fun! Fridays on the Farm–also known as Pizza Fridays–offers all-natural, locally-sourced artisan pizzas baked in an outdoor, wood-fired brick oven. Diners from all over the tri-state area have traveled to take part in this unique dining experience.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating ten years of Fridays on the Farm!” said farm owner and HOPE CSA Executive Director Jeff Hawkins. “To start this season, the farm will be hosting a kickoff event on June 8 from 5-7pm.”
In addition to brick oven pizza, the Fridays on the Farm kickoff event on June 8 will feature Junk Ditch Brewery Company beer available for purchase. Diners will have the opportunity to tour the farm with the owners and learn about CSA shareholding opportunities. Guest chefs Lindsay and John Cheesebrew of Bird and Cleaver will be crafting specialty pizzas featuring seasonal ingredients in addition to the standard pizza menu that includes the traditional margherita, Hawkins Farm sausage and Hawkins Farm pepperoni.
Fridays on the Farm is sponsored by Visit Wabash County, Silveus Insurance, Light Rail Cafe & Roaster, Don & Becky Fry, and Steve & Erin Jungbauer in memory of David Grandstaff and honor of Jane Grandstaff.
Pizzas can be carried out or enjoyed picnic-style on the farm. Standard pizzas range from $10-20, payable by cash, check or credit card. Diners are encouraged to bring blankets, table service, and beverages, as there are no napkins, utensils, tables, or trash cans available on the farm. Diners are also responsible for removing all trash from the property once they are finished. Reservations and pre-orders are not accepted; orders are taken on a first come/first served basis.
All profits from Fridays on the Farm benefit HOPE CSA, a non-profit ecumenical teaching ministry that offers a course of experiential learning and academic study to assist pastors to become healthier and more effective leaders.
Fridays on the Farm runs all summer long from June 8 through September 14. To learn more about Fridays on the Farm, visit www.hawkinsfamilyfarm.com. For more information about HOPE CSA, visit www.hopecsa.org.
