BOBOLINK DAIRY & BAKEHOUSE
On Sunday, August 7, Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse will host a “Some Like It Hot Club,” an afternoon on the lawn of the farmhouse, listening to gypsy jazz and enjoying great food. The farm store will be selling cheeses, breads and burgers made with meats from Bobolink and produce from the garden. There is no charge for the music, but reservations are requested, and food can be reserved in advance. “Some Like It Hot Club” is a Jazz band inspired by the works of Django Reinhardt and the sweet and hot sounds of France in the 1930’s and 40’s.

The event is BYOB, no dogs please; 1 to 4 PM. There will be sufficient tent space, with tables for limited seating to hold the event rain or shine.

Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse was founded by Nina & Jonathan White in 2002, guided by their conviction that the best foods are produced using sustainable, humane, and ethical methods. Their 100% grass-fed raw cows’ milk cheeses are seasonally variable and the bakehouse uses organic grains that are predominantly grown and milled in the Northeast. Nina & Jonathan also raise their male cattle for 100% grass-fed mature beef.

Reservations can be made at this website.
