BUCKS COUNTY >> Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Buy Fresh Buy Local Bucks County announce the 2019 series of popular farm evenings that introduce consumers to the local small-scale producers who put the freshest foods onto our tables via direct sales, community-supported agriculture operations (CSAs), farmers markets, farm stands, and other venues. The farm evenings include a potluck dinner and a tour of the farm.
The 2019 series opens Wednesday, June 5 with a visit to Tussock Sedge Farm, 1239 PA-113, Blooming Glen 18911. While the tour is free, donations to offset the cost of BCFA’s programs are greatly appreciated.
Tussock Sedge farm sits on 550 beautiful, preserved acres in Bucks County where they raise 100 percent grass-fed Red Angus beef cattle. Tussock Sedge Farm does not use herbicides or pesticides on their fields, nor do they use growth hormones or antibiotics in raising their cattle. Their grass-fed beef is dry-aged, vacuum packed, and flash frozen for freshness.
Tussock Sedge Farm welcomes Farm Tour attendees to purchase individual pieces, a Sampler Pak, or an 1/8 of one Tussock Sedge 100 percent Grass-fed Beef Cow. Attendees can order ahead on tussocksedgefarm.com and pick up at the farm tour on 6/5. Purchases by the piece will be available that evening as well.

The evening’s potluck meal runs from 6 to 7 p.m., with the tour to follow. Visitors are expected to bring a dish to share with others and their family’s own eating equipment, beverages and seating, and carry out their own trash. This educational and entertaining event is appropriate for children of all ages who are under an adult’s supervision. Please wear appropriate footwear for the farm.
