HOPE CSA, in conjunction with Hawkins Family Farm, is pleased to announce the return of Fridays on the Farm, the weekly dining event featuring artisan pizzas made with all-natural, locally sourced ingredients baked in an outdoor, wood-fired brick oven. Pizza will be served most Fridays during the summer from 5:00p.m.-8:00p.m, starting Friday, May 18.
“We serve ten-inch pizzas,” said Jeff Hawkins, owner of Hawkins Family Farm and Executive Director of HOPE CSA, Inc. "The dough is hand-stretched rather than rolled in order to maintain its structure for a perfect crust. Add to this basil and tomatoes freshly picked from our gardens in season, pepperoni or sausage from our pigs, flour milled by Greenfield Mills in Howe, Indiana, and cheese made by Swissland Cheese in Berne, Indiana, and you have an eating experience that is hard to beat."
Friday night pizza has become a tradition for many in Wabash County. “My kids look forward to it all week!” says North Manchester resident Ashleigh Maxcey. “Getting to wander around the farm while the food cooks is a great break for me and a fascinating adventure for the kids.”
Many travel hours for this unique dining experience. “[I love] being able to sit and talk with my friends and family. The atmosphere is amazing!” says Indianapolis resident Britta Eberly Glass.
Pizzas can be taken out or enjoyed picnic-style on the farm. Diners are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, table service and beverages, as there will be no napkins, utensils, tables,
trashcans or beverages available on the farm. Diners are also responsible for removing all trash
from the property once they are finished.
Pizzas range from $10-14 each, payable by cash, check, or credit card. Reservations and preorders
are not accepted; orders are taken on a first come, first serve basis. All profits from Fridays on the Farm benefit HOPE CSA, a non-profit ecumenical teaching ministry that offers a course of
experiential learning and academic study to assist pastors to become healthier and more effective
leaders. For more information, visit www.hopecsa.org.
