Sunday Picnic at the Waterloo Farm Museum
Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Grass Lake Charter Township, MI
This old-fashioned picnic will showcase Michigan's indigenous and "settler" foods in one of the loveliest settings you can imagine, at the Waterloo Farm Museum. So pack up your picnic-ware and grab your friends and family to experience Sunday afternoon at a historic farm in the country.
Chefs from The Raven's Club, Grange Kitchen and Bar, and Mill Pond Bread will be working with our best local farms, including Old Pine Farm, Handsown Farm, Tantre Farm and Frog Holler Farm, to prepare a delicious 6-course menu, including handmade ice cream (crank it yourself!) and beverages like fresh lemonade and fruit "shrubs."
The Waterloo Farm Museum will be open so you can learn about the beautiful home and rural life of the Realy family, who setttled in Michigan in the early 1800s. See how they cooked on a wood-fired stove, spun their own wool, ground corn, and churned butter that they stored in the cool of the milk house. Outside, we'll also have old-time lawn games, small farm animals, and music to boot.
