Our Next Food Truck Rodeo is Almost Here!

 The final Food Truck Rodeo of the season is fast approaching.

Get ready for lots of outdoor fun. There’s family fun for all including hayrides, corn hole games, a bouncy house and face painting for the kids. Adults can enjoy craft beer from local breweries including Lithology, Flying Belgian, and Barrier breweries. There’s also wine from Long Island’s Beverage Brokers.   We have food from many of your fan favorites along with some new additions. Check out Green Street, Cheezy Pete’s, Empanada Queen, Elizabeth Walker, Ed’s Polish Kielbasa, Juice Drive Juice Truck, and Kona Ice.

They’ll be entertainment by the School of Rock band of Long Island.

Tickets for the Food Truck Rodeo may be purchased in advance  at the Farm stand or may be purchased at the door.
