The autumnal equinox occurs in just a few short days. And what better way to enjoy, literally, the last day of summer than celebrating still-glorious weather in such a captivating, and romantic setting, as a sprawling urban farm located in the heart of Buffalo’s West Side? Now, many have gotten familiar with WestSide Tilth Farm through their Saturday farmers markets and Solar Pizza Parties. However, there have been very few opportunities to intimately connect with the farm in such a way as they are currently offering up, this weekend.
Sunday, September 22nd, from 2pm-6pm, WestSide Tilth Farm is hosting a Cowboy Barbecue celebrating the art of wood fired cooking. The farm feast utilizes the oldest cooking technique in the world, and features the most delightful vegetables one could hope to procure locally (grown on raised beds). In addition, guests can expect to come across some of the freshest, most flavorful local chicken offered, and exquisite American wagyu, to name a few tantalizing tidbits – this [early] dinner is the perfect way to usher in the coming bounty of fall. There will be quite the abundance on the table, so to speak, a true farm to table culinary spread highlighting almost every vegetable grown at Tilth, cooked in a unique and delectable way.
Waygu beef on the pit, spatchcock chicken, vegetables on the grill, fresh garden salads, wine, cider, live music, and a whole lot of fire.
In addition to the nourishing array of food, there will be also be plenty of other ways to interact with the farm… to get that “farm experience”. Furthermore, there will be quite the live “soundtrack” for the afternoon, with French ConeXion, a local trio of musicians consisting of an accordionist, guitarist, and cellist! The band rounds things out with the perfect blend of talent and whimsy – think gypsy jazz, meets Brazilian choros, with some jazz standards and originals sprinkled about.
At this point, with only a few days left until this Cowboy Barbecue, there are a limited number of tickets left, and no tickets will be sold at the door. So if you are looking for a auspicious way to end a most glorious summer, consider this the perfect high note.
