Mayfair hosts breakfast, tour
The last of this year’s five farm dinners was held on Oct. 6, when 150 people gathered at Mayfair Farm for October Feast.
During the event, attendees sampled local beer entered in the home brew competition, listened to the Mayfair Farm house band, and ate a gourmet meal prepared in the farm’s commercial kitchen. Mayfair supplied the meat, eggs, tomatoes, pumpkin, and raspberries, while produce came from Farmer John’s Plot and cider from Keene’s Maple Lane Farm.
First-time home brewers Nick Colony and Bryan Kingsbury of Harrisville won the top prize in the competition with their Cupola Oktoberfest brew. The duo will be enjoying a whole Mayfair roasting pig and use of the farm’s motorized spit. Second prize, a Mayfair Thanksgiving turkey, went to John Bennink of Vermont for Maypo, his maple porter ale.
As with past Mayfair dinners, the farm donated 10 percent of its on-farm retail store sales for the week following October Feast to a local nonprofit. This time, Mayfair gave $350 to Farmer John’s Plot in Dublin.
