Buckley Farm Benefit Brunch
10:00am - 12:00pm +
The Wm. H. Buckley Farm and Saratoga PLAN are hosting a brunch to benefit the conservation of working farmland in Saratoga County. This is an opportunity to visit a farm that is currently undergoing the process of being preserved and to support the conservation of additional farms in the future.
Richard Ball, Commissioner of NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets, will share his thoughts about agriculture and farmland conservation throughout New York State.
Mark and Beth Sacco, the owners of the Buckley Farm, are currently working with Saratoga PLAN, a non-profit conservation organization, to conserve this 260 acre farm with grant awards from New York State. They will share their vision for creating a profitable farm business based on directly serving their neighbors and guests while working towards their goal of being a completely self-sustaining farm within one year. Following brunch and remarks, the Saccos will lead a tour of the historic farm to see its restoration, the café, butcher shop and event facilities and to visit with the chickens, turkeys, beef cattle, and pigs.
The Wm. H. Buckley Farm is located at 946 Route 50, the former Cappiello and Lakeridge dairy farms in Ballston Lake. Brunch will be served at 10:00am and feature products from the Buckley Farm including scrambled eggs, sausage, corned beef hash, sautéed greens, Smith’s Orchard pie, apple cider, and fresh coffee.
The cost for brunch is $40 per individual and $10 for kids under the age of ten. Proceeds will support Saratoga PLAN in assisting farmland owners in Saratoga County with conserving their farms for the future.
