From vegetable farm to perennial farm and the alchemical process of fermentation, Fable Farm has been harnessing the solar energy of plants and crafting agrarian products for the past ten years. Their products--aged vinegar and award-winning? wines procured from apples, grapes and honey, are expanding throughout VT and beginning to travel far and wide from Maine to California. It has been a long journey from the early days at the Fable Farmhouse (when Fable Fam began as a CSA vegetable farm) in the center of Barnard to the new Fermentory off the Royalton Turnpike. Throughout all the change, they’ve managed to maintain a wood-fired hearth as the centerpiece in their creations of locally sourced cuisine.
In celebration of their first decade venturing as Fable Farm, they’ll be firing up the hearth and offering farm-fresh flatbreads like the good ol’ days, but this time with fresh oysters! In the spirit of collaboration, they’re teaming up with Peter Varkonyi and Lauren Stevens of Butcher & Pantry, a new community marketplace and butcher shop about to open in the original general store of Brownsville, Vermont. Chef master Peter will be on the wood fired hearth cranking out flatbread jewels. They will also be partnering with Wood Mountain Fish out of Cambridge, MA to bring amazing oysters from the coast. Pizza and oysters are quite the compliment to Fable’s alpine wines/ciders, packed with fresh acidity, minerality, and salty notes all woven together with a delightful effervescence.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 25th, and goes from 3 - 7pm. In addition to pizzas and oysters, there will be two bars serving up all different types of their living wines/ciders--by the glass and by the bottle. This will be an indoor-outdoor event with a fire in the orchard. So come prepared to engage in some old fashioned merrymaking!
