Burger Night @ Bread and Butter Farm, Featuring Mister Chris and Friends

Burger Night started innocently in 2011 as a way for Bread and Butter Farm to promote that they were raising grass-fed beef. They thought it sounded like fun to grill some burgers on a Friday afternoon for our Farm Store customers to let them try out the beef. The very first event they held, 150 people showed up! They were blown away. It hasn’t stopped since. They have been amazed with the response and have done everything. They can to keep up with the lively demand, serve the highest quality, delicious food, and open up this beautiful conserved farmland for everyone to enjoy.

At Burger Night they serve a full meal that comes almost entirely from their farm. They raise the cows who provide the beef, they bake the buns, and they grow the veggies for the salads. This year you can compliment your meal with a popsicle made from fresh seasonal berries from Adam’s Berry Farm.

The music has not had to travel far either. Each week, Chris Dorman (founder of Music for Sprouts) brings amazing bands to liven up the event. Many of the bands are local and their set at Burger Night is a chance to celebrate their integral role in our local community.

Cost: Admission is free | Order a heaping plate of fresh food for around $12.
