The holiday weekend was a perfect time to come out to the Black Sheep Hill Farm Fest in Pine Plains!
Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the Black Sheep Hill Farm Fest in Pine Plains drew attendees eager to learn about local farms and sample their wares. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. over 300 people were welcomed to the farm by owners Irene and Jack Banning, and were able to sample products from Black Sheep Hill Farm as well as from Chaseholm Farm and Chaseholm Farm Creamery, JACüTERIE, and Ronnybrook Dairy. Full Circus Farm was there to talk about their experience as participants in the DLC and CLC Farmer Landowner Match Program and offer for sale CSA shares for organic vegetables from the farm. Lambs, chicks, a calf, and pigs were also on hand to delight the crowd who left full of cheese, quiche, various meats and milkshakes – a cool treat on an unseasonably warm day!
