On Saturday Sept 30th, starting at Noon: Wayside Cider is hosting a fundraising benefit called Cows for Cafeterias.
The tap room in Andes is teaming up with Farm Catskills and Andes School to throw a big party and pig roast to raise money to buy a whole beef cow for Andes school cafeteria.
Says co-owner Alex Wilson, “When we opened our taproom in Andes, the community immediately made us feel welcome. We want to show our appreciation by giving back to this beautiful village, and couldn’t think of a better way than to support the young students at Andes Central School”.
The event starts at noon runs until 10pm, with the food being served until 5pm and an auction beginning at 2pm where you can bid on a fishing excursion with local fishing guide Esopus Creel and art by talented local artists.
Tickets for this worthy event are $30 in advance, or $35 on the door, which includes a pig roast and music. Customers can also buy a no-meal pass for $5. Echo Farm, East Branch Farms, Barber’s Farm and Hanselman Farm are the local farms slated to provide the meat and vegetables for the roast. Proceeds will be used to buy a beef cow for the Andes Central School lunch cafeteria where it will be prepared and served to students throughout the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year. They wanted to extend the opportunity and benefits of enjoying local, sustainable beef to the students of Andes Central School
