Prairie Fruits Farm Open House tonight, 4-6 p.m.

If you haven’t already been to the Prairie Fruits Farm Wednesday open house, you’re missing out. Check out this afternoon’s line-up (hello, sangria sorbetto!):

We’ve got some new gelato and sorbetto flavors for you to try including:

Fresh Mint Stracciatella
Red Currant Sorbetto
House-made Sangria Sorbetto (for adults only)

We’ll also have a few of the popular standards such as Salted-Caramel Swirl. 

We have plenty of cheese for you to try and buy too:

Fresh chevre
Bloomy rind cheeses
Huckleberry Blue

Seven Sisters Farm will be bringing us lots more pasture-raised hen eggs AND fresh (yes, you heard right) pastured broilers ($4/lb.–very reasonable price considering these birds are fresh not frozen) and a few poussin (this is the french version of cornish hens; these are frozen). 

Looking for some artisan sausages to accompany those chickens on your grill? Try some Piedmonte Sausages–these pork and chicken sausages are made right here in Champaign-Urbana using old world recipes. 

Tomahnous Farm will have ORGANIC BLUEBERRIES along with a great selection of early summer veggies. Heirloominous Farm has the most fantastic breakfast radishes along with succulent kale. 

Stewart’s Artisan Breads will have an assortment of rustic breads, bagels, cookies and granola. 

Laurence, the Knife Dude, returns to the farm, fresh from vacation, to sharpen your knives while you shop and visit with the goats.  

Prairie Fruits Farm is located at 4410 N. Lincoln Ave., Champaign.
