Belkin Family Lookout Farm and Farm Aid have teamed up to hold the inaugural “Farm Aid Day at Belkin Farm” on Saturday, June 20th. The day-long celebration will include children’s activities, live music, cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs, strawberry picking, raffles and special activities that emphasize locally grown food. Strawberries will be in full season and available for picking in the orchards or for purchase at concessions.
Among the live, interactive entertainment will be cooking demonstrations by Chef Evan Percoco of BOXK 109 American Prime in Newton. Chef Percoco, whose home is actually located on the farm, will prepare a special dish featuring strawberries, invite children to help him prepare it, and provide tastings for all beginning at noon. A live musical performance will be held from 1-2 PM, featuring a sign-along with acoustic artist Jeff Jam.
Other activities taking place throughout the day include face painting, temporary tattoos, train rides, a hay pyramid, seeds to bring home for children to help plant, a burlap maze, moon bounce, meet and greets with Belkin Family Lookout Farm’s new apple mascot (and the chance to help name it!), and fantastic raffle prizes. Among the prizes are restaurant gift certificates, free admission passes to Belkin Farm, a season-long pass to Belkin Farm, and Farm Aid t-shirts. For a detailed schedule of the day’s events, visit the Lookout Farm Festivities page.
A portion of the proceeds from admission fees that day will benefit Farm Aid.
