Last Farm Tour and Potluck at Manoff Market Gardens

The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance is hosting its final summer evening farm tour this Wednesday, September 2nd at the Manoff Market Gardens in Solebury.

The potluck supper begins at 6:30pm and is followed at 7:30pm by the farmer-guided tour of one of the area’s premier small farms. There is no charge and no need to register for the event: just come with a picnic dish to share and your own beverages, eating equipment and chairs.

Manoffs’ is at 3157 Comfort Road (between Laurel and Paxson roads), Solebury, PA 18963. The event is held rain or shine.

Gary and Amy Manoff began farming on Comfort Road in 1984. They are known for their white and yellow peaches and nectarines and 20 different varieties of apples, as well as strawberries, blackberries, melons, pumpkins and flowers. Pick-your-own crops include strawberries and pumpkins. The farm stand, open from spring through January, sells seasonal fruit as well as the jams, butters, peaches and applesauce they make from their own fruit. They also do gift baskets year-round. The whole family participates, and even Hale, the family’s Lab, gets into the act as the official welcoming committee.
