A  Heavenly Feast

Canticle Farm is holding its fifth annual Heavenly Harvest on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, noon–4 p.m. The farm is located at 3835 South Nine Mile Rd. in Allegany, N.Y.

Heavenly Harvest is the farm’s premier event that invites the community to the farm for a “Field to Fork Lunch” prepared by local chefs, featuring a three-course meal of freshly grown produce.

The day also features live and local music, farm tours, Contra Dancing, a Labyrinth Walk, raffle prizes and so much more!

All monies raised from this event goes towards the farm and the development of its new property, The North Farm, which will allow Canticle to bring local, naturally grown, healthy produce to the community for years to come.

Advanced adult tickets are $20. Tickets will also be available at the door the day of the event ($25 adults, $10 children).

Tickets can be purchased directly from a Canticle shareholder, by visiting the North Farm at 3809 Old State Rd. in Allegany, or online at www.canticlefarm.org.

Canticle Farm is a local, non-profit, Certified Naturally Grown vegetable farm. The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm is sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany and sells farm spring, summer and fall shares to members of the local public. Canticle Farm currently has over 200 shareholders and has been producing quality, locally grown vegetables since 2001.

On that same Sunday, the Cattaraugus County Arts Council invites regional artists to bring out their easels, brushes and cameras to participate in a plein air Paint Out at Canticle Farm in Allegany, N.Y.
