Join us for baseball and all-you-can eat ice cream! A fun-filled day for the entire family to benefit the Jordan Porco Foundation. The Farmer’s Cow Calfe & Creamery was the winner in 2015 with Farmland Crunch Ice Cream! Help us take home the trophy again!
Celebrate the summer season country-style with an old fashioned corn roast at Cushman Farms! The Farmer’s Cow is proud to invite visitors to this annual free family farm tour on Saturday, August 5th from 1-3pm.
The Cushman and Smith families graciously host this popular event featuring fresh picked local sweet corn slow roasted in the husk over a charcoal fire. Enjoy complimentary ice cream, refreshing Summer Beverages, and sample the latest flavor Limited Edition Milk. There will be lots to do on the farm too! See the cows from a wagon ride through the barns. After touring the rotary milking parlor with a ‘merry-go-round’ that milks 30 cows at a time, kids can try hand milking “Daphne the Cow”!
This event is rain or shine. Extreme weather may cancel. No reservation is required. Please no strollers and no pets except service dogs. Visit www.thefarmerscow.com/our-farms-cushman for more information and directions, and check The Farmer’s Cow Facebook page for updates.
Enjoy the new flavor of The Last Green Valley’s Annual Fundraiser – a seated 5-course gourmet dinner. Locally grown products will be cooked up into unique tastes by top chefs, all from our National Heritage Corridor. Dine with our guest agri-superstars & TLGV notables, as they move from table to table with each course. The auction items, raffle baskets & pledge forms will be present, too, but look for a whole new course of fun & fundraising opportunities. This event will be like nothing you’ve experienced before, so join us to support TLGV’s diverse programming.
