Intrigued by a review I read about an old fashioned farm full of colorful autumn gourds and organic produce, I made a little trek through the Santa Ynez Valley to Summerset Farm. A produce stand located just north of Solvang and Santa Ynez. Summerset Farm was filled with all sorts organic vegetables, herbs, flowers, budding gourds and to my surprise rows and rows of delicious raspberries and blackberries in the Summer! That's when the idea of a pie workshop for summer was born.
In that spirit, Fruitful Collaborations is happy to announce that we will be hosting the first event of our second season this August at Summerset Farm! A morning spent picking fresh berries, followed a lesson on how to create handmade galette tart/pies. We will taste and learn how to make both sweet and savory variations. Guests will collect recipes from our featured chef, Ashley Mulligan Schutz, and take home some homemade toppings so they can create their own with the harvest from the day.
But the event would not be complete without a gourmet picnic! A chance to soak in the farms quiet beauty, meander around the bountiful gardens, and visit with both old and new friends. Please join us from 10am - 1pm on Saturday, August 2 at Summerset Farm!
The stand is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
