BUCKS COUNTY >> The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Buy Fresh Buy Local Bucks County has announced its 2020 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 socially-distanced tour of the farm. There will be no potluck meal this year.

The 2020 series opens Wednesday, July 8 with a visit to Solly Brother’s Farm at 707 Almshouse Road, Warminster 18974. While the tour is free, donations to offset the cost of BCFA’s programs are greatly appreciated.

The farm provides fresh, locally grown produce and offers a robust farm store including a bakery, a CSA, Pick-Your-Own veggies and fruits, as well as hayrides, special events, educational tours and more.

Solly Brother’s Farm Store is open daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will stay open later on July 8th for farm tour attendees to browse and purchase items. Face masks are required to enter the store. Due to the pandemic, Solly Brother’s Farm has introduced online ordering and curbside pick-up. The farm store is stocked with fresh produce, eggs, fruit pies, savory pot pies, baked goods, preserves, cheese, ice cream, soup, and more!
