Bringin’ Bacon to Maplefest at Wellspring Forest Farm

Instead of our regular farmers market schedule, we’re taking our pastured meats to the best maple festival west of Podunk!

Visit the enchanting Wellspring Forest Farm
in Mecklenburg, NY
this Saturday, March 17,
10 am to 4 pm.

The sugar shack is nestled between sheep pasture and hedgerows, wandering ducks, Buck Hill Pond and the mushroom maple woods. You will find the scent of maple syrup, a pizza oven and a BBQ, the sounds of music and laughter, plus a scene full of forest-loving farmers among gourmet food fans.
Just up the path from the boiling syrup, in a yurt overlooking the pastures, Cayuta Sun Farm will be showcasing our bacon and smoked pork products. We’ll be joined by the Finger Lakes Cider House, Acorn DesignsBeeSpoke Apothecary, and Ort Family Farm in a festival market.

BACON ALERT: Our naturally brined and smoked bacon is in low supply… this event may be the last of our belly, shoulder and back bacon until June.

HAM ROASTS: We have a collection of smoked ham end roasts… perfect for a holiday feast.

CHICKEN: A few Dark Cornish roasters and some regular whole broiler chickens will be available.

Deserts reflected the dinner guests’ bountiful harvest of apples, pears and berries. We enjoyed homemade cheese and bread, and plenty of Finger Lakes wine and home-brewed beer.
