First Friday at the Farm January: Beef and Olive Oil

RESCHEDULED TO JANUARY 10TH!

RESCHEDULED TO JANUARY 10TH!

Visit our Pennington market January 10th from 4pm-7pm for our monthly First Friday (SECOND Friday now due to weather!) Meet TWO of our favorite producers and taste a delicious recipe made with both of their products: organic, single grove, Tunisian Olive Oils from Mediterranean Delicacies and pasture raised, local meats form Tullamore Farms.

Abdel’s family in Tunisia takes great care of their certified organic olive grove and for the process of extracting their buttery, slightly spicy oils. The results benefit us lucky few in Pa and New Jersey who live near Abdel’s home away from home!
Jeanmarie and her daughter raise a small herd of steer and lambs in Stockton, NJ using the best practices possible. Their award winning, pure tasting meats have great flavor and maximize nutritional benefits of these products.

Abdel is preparing a Tullamore sirloin roast with his olive oil and fresh herbs.  There will be fresh baguettes and local cheese for non-meat eaters. As always, enjoy live music by Jim Arkus and sip some complimentary wine & beer. Get your weekend supplies and have fun while you’re at it!
