Farm, Trolley Museum to host farm dinner this weekend

Neverdun Farm and Seashore Trolley Museum will host a cooperative farm dinner 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6 at the Trolley Museum.

Celebrate the local harvest by eating a classic Maine bean supper with a fermented foods twist. Cooperative Fermentation’s Farm Dinner guests will ride on a trolley from the Seashore Trolley Museum to arrive at the dinner at Neverdun Farm in Arundel. Jenny Van West will serenade guests with old time fiddle music on their train ride to the farm and during dinner. After dinner Sean Mencher will get folks moving with rockabilly music around a bonfire.

The menu will include bean hole baked beans; homemade sausage and vegetarian options; sauerkraut and other ferments; biscuits; and blueberry pie with whipped cream.

All the food for the dinner will be sourced from local and organic farms and will be prepared by Jonah Fertig, coordinator of Cooperative Fermentation and co-founder of Local Sprouts Cooperative, along with volunteers from the community.

From 3 to 5 p.m. there will be workshops including fermentation, and introduction to permaculture and yoga. Interested participants should register separately for these workshops.

There will be a raffle and silent auction featuring locally made goods, fermented foods and services. Proceeds from the event will benefit cooperative development and learning initiatives from Cooperative Fermentation.

Admission prices vary for children and adults and work trades and barters are accepted. For more information, visit www.cooperativefermentation.org/cooperative fermentation-farm-dinner/, call Jonah Fertig at 615-9970 or email Jonah.fertig@gmail.com.
