On Sunday, August 28, the 4th annual Amateur BBQ Pulled Pork Competition will be held at Alyson’s Orchard from 11AM – 3 PM. This fun summer event, sponsored by Alyson’s Orchard and The Pit Stop Smokehouse, is a benefit for the Fall Mtn. Food Shelf.
The public is welcome to sample the pulled pork and vote for the People’s Choice Award between 12 noon and 2PM. There is no admission charge for this event, but anyone who wants to sample must bring either one non-perishable food item to donate, or make a small, cash contribution to benefit the Fall Mountain Food Shelf. There will also be BBQ food for sale to the public from the Pit Stop Smokehouse, a Beer & Soft Drink Tent to compliment the BBQ, and unique ice cream, mixed and frozen on the spot using liquid nitrogen, from Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt!
Alyson’s farm stand store will be open with new, local products as well as fresh seasonal fruits and berries. You can also Pick-Your-Own Paula Red and Ginger Gold apples. Other activities that day will include: face painting; free wagon rides through the orchard; children’s playground, and lawn games for kids of all ages! Be sure to visit their new baby goats and ‘Buddy’ the big bunny! This is perfect summer event for the whole family! The BBQ event will run from 11AM-3PM (tasting from 12-2PM) and their farm store is open from 9AM – 5PM Mon.-Thurs and 9-6 Fri-Sun. for the season. Don’t forget to bring home one of their delicious fruit pies or chicken pot pies for dinner!
