Let’s celebrate Fermentation Fest together – Friday night’s Pig Roast and Sunday afternoon’s Apple Pie Contest.
Friday, October 7, from 4 – 7 pm. A Pig Roast at Farm/Art DTour Food Chain 1, St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Loreto. Wisconsin River Meats will season and smoke a pig for 12 hours before grilling and carving on site. We’ll serve it with two side dishes provided by other Food Chain vendors and beverages available to purchase. Tickets are $15 – pay at door or in advance online. As a special offer to support the Michael Perry concert to benefit Kids Ranch, we will provide a $3 discount for those purchasing a ticket to the Pig Roast and the concert. This offer is only available for purchases made at the Reedsburg Chamber of Commerce, 240 Railroad Street.
Sunday, October 9, 2:30 – 5pm (or until pie lasts!) at Ferme Lab, 300 Vine Street, Reedsburg. Open to anyone who wishes to bake an apple pie (individual or teams). One entry per person/team, and simply bring your pie to the Ferme Lab after 9 AM on Sunday. Judging will begin at 3:30 PM – come watch your entry and bring your rooters! Then stay to taste the pies as we’ll sell them by the slice for a suggested donation of $2. Judges will be Peter Reinhart, one of the world’s leading authorities on bread; Jennifer Mans, owner of Humble Sweet and Savory Pies in Madison; and Craig Braunschweig, Director of Rock Springs Public Library (who likes pie).
