Bucks County Foodshed Alliance Goes to
Myerov Family Farm in Perkasie to
Eat, Tour, Hear Piano Concert

Wednesday, August 1, Potluck starts at 6:00pm
 
CSA share from Myerov Family Farm
The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance’s 2012 Summer Farm Evening Series has been full of surprises. August’s offering continues the trend with a concert performed by farmer and concert pianist Neil Myerov, along with a potluck dinner and tour of the Myerov Family Farm and Market at 306 Elephant Road, Perkasie 18944.
 
Neil Myerov has fed his lifelong love of farming with a variety of planting and growing pursuits, interwoven with his training and application as a classical musician and musical director. Although he started farming part-time in 1982, his gardening obsession first bloomed in junior high with his family’s NE Philadelphia garden and later as a horticultural production manager at Delaware Valley College in Doylestown Township. In between, he studied at the New England Conservatory of Music, was choir director at Beth Shalom in Elkins Park for 30 years, and is currently choir director and organist at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Riegelsville.
 
Today the Myerov family operates a full-time farm market on the 12-acre property where they grow a diverse offering of vegetables, which changes year to year, and extend the season with a greenhouse and high tunnels. The crops are also enjoyed by the members of the Myerov CSA (community-supported agriculture), who pick up their shares each week throughout the season.  
 
The evening’s potluck meal runs from 6:00 to 7:00pm and includes a 20-30-minute concert by Myerov. Car-pooling is strongly encouraged; limited parking is available at the farm market and along the driveway. For more on the farm: http://myerovfarm.com.
 
Visitors are expected to bring a dish or beverages to share with others and their family’s own eating equipment and seating, and they are expected to carry out their own trash. Although the summer events are free, donations to BCFA’s programs are encouraged. This educational and entertaining event is appropriate for school-aged children who are under an adult’s careful supervision.
 
Any cancellations due to severe weather will be posted on the BCFA website. For more information: 215.598.3979 or www.BucksCountyFoodshedAlliance.org.
