Event: Asparaganza 2013

Press release from The Good Life Farm:

Party into Spring at Asparaganza 2013!  Saturday, May 11, 2013, Noon- 7PM

Good Life Farm hosts its second annual Asparaganza Festival on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from Noon- 7PM.  This event is free, family-friendly and open to the public, and features amazing local food, a wine-beer-cider salon, family+friends fun and farm goodness! 

Interlaken, NY- Asparaganza kicks off at noon when the Allemande Farm Worksongers reinvigorate farm labor with joyful work songs from all over the world.  Following this community Work-Sing, Steve Selin and Friends share their string and vocal stylings and Toivo wraps up the day with traditional music from the Finger Lakes.  Everyone is invited to make their own mushroom logs with Double E of Danby, card wool from the Icelandic sheep of Wolftree Farm (Hector) and mow old-school by scything Good Life’s tall grass.  For active spirits of all ages, games and races go on all day and are interspersed with farm tours of Good Life Farm’s orchards, high tunnels, draft horses and incredible Cayuga Lake view! 

Food and drink are all from our region’s finest chefs, farms, wineries and hard cideries.  Wine from Red Newt Winery, Beer from Ithaca Beer, and Cider Tasting from the Finger Lakes Cider Alliance (Bellwether Hard Cider, Eve’s Cidery and Redbyrd Orchard Cider).  Food- think deep fried asparagus and asparagus ice cream!- from Cayuga Creamery, Crooked Carrot CSK, The Piggery and Red New Bistro.

Last year’s Asparaganza embodied the fun and dedication of the Finger Lakes community to local farms, food and music, with over 300 attendees throughout the 3-hour event.  This year, the event starts off at noon with the Allemande Farm Worksongers and goes into the evening, making it the ideal spot for lunch or dinner, a post-MayDay 5K cool down and a great place to play with friends and family.

Asparaganza 2013 is sponsored at the Foundational level by Luckystone Partners of Trumansburg, Red Newt Winery and Bistro; and is Sustained by Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming, Ithaca Beer, Northland Sheep Dairy and Three Stone Farm.
