Pizza Night at Old School Farm

For anyone who has been following our farm blog, we have some exciting news -  Pizza Nights at Old School Farm!

We started these the end of June and our last event this past Friday saw 75 pizza lovers at the farm enjoying what many claim to be the best pizza they have ever had.

The secret is our wood-fired earthen oven that we constructed close to five years ago.  We top our pies with homemade sauce and farm fresh ingredients and cover them with cheeses made locally at Calkin's Creamery.

Stop by or spread the word for our next event on Friday, August 26th.  

Here's our Events Page on Facebook

4th Annual Father - Son Weekend at the Farm

The Dads try out the Old School earthen oven for some artisan pies
For the past four Memorial Day weekends the Benner's have hosted the boys' schoolmates/neighborhood friends (Mt Airy - Philly) and their dads for an action packed weekend at the farm.  It's always hectic, but it's always fun!  This year we may have outdone ourselves as you will see from the photos below - this and much more all took place in less than 48 hours!
