Thunder Road Farm hosts raspberry jam farm party
News from the Arlee CDC
ARLEE — Thunder Road Farm in Arlee is hosting a Raspberry Jam Farm Party on Sunday, July 30 from 5:30 - 9 p.m. The event includes picking fresh raspberries to take home, followed by a farm-to-table dinner made with local ingredients and live music by John Floridis and Jennifer Slayden, with guest musician Amelia Thornton Sears.
“The Raspberry Jam was a u-picking event that used to happen annually on a different farm in the Jocko Valley. We are so excited to revive this fun, family-friendly tradition that celebrates raspberry season, locally-produced food, and community,” said Gillian Thornton Andrews of Thunder Road Farm. “The berry patch has beautiful views of the Mission Mountains, and we hope that everyone who attends enjoys the food, music, and scenery.”
Tickets are $42 for adults and $12 for children, which includes picking a half pint of raspberries, a Thunder Road Farm burger or veggie burger and sides, and an evening of live music and spectacular mountain views. Beer will be available for purchase and seating is limited, so it’s recommended that guests bring a camp chair or picnic blanket. Attendance is limited to 100 and tickets can be purchased at: www.thunderroad.farm
This event is sponsored by the Arlee Community Development Corporation and Hopa Mountain.
