GRASS VALLEY, Calif. July 18, 2017 – Grab your bathing suit and a scrumptious dish to share and bop on over to Sierra Harvest’s 3rd Farm Potluck of the season this Thursday, July 20th from 5:30-8pm at Starbright Acres – a sustainable, local, organic family farm on 3.2 acres in Grass Valley, offering fresh vegetables and eggs. Join our hosts Aleta & Ken Barrett for this third Sierra Harvest potluck of the season! Come see a Nevada County farm grossing triple digits on one-acre in production.
Buy Fresh From the Farm!
Shop at their farm store during or after the potluck as it will be stocked with arugula, kale, salad mix, radishes, salad turnips, cilantro, green and gold zucchini, summer squash, trombetta squash, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, shallots, potatoes and eggs!
Their swimming pool will be open but all children must be supervised by a parent or guardian while in the pool area – safety first!
