You can find Cicco, the master pizza maker, at Westwind every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 6pm through October, spinning perfect pies made using his nonna’s recipe. The toppings include prosciutto and anchovies alongside fresh, organic produce from the farm like basil (duh), zucchini, squash blossoms, tomatoes, and more.
With Arrowood Farms brewery and Hollengold Farm across the road, this backwoods Accord road has become quite the food/craft beverage mecca. If you haven't been up that way yet this summer, here are a three reasons to check it out right now.
The first raspberries of the season have been picked and are for sale in the Westwind farm store (and being stored for future batches of their signature raspberry hard cider). U-Pick raspberry season is coming soon (maybe next week), so stay tuned.
Thursdays are for Tapas
Westwind opened its new tasting room back in early May, and they're finding all sorts of fun ways to use the space. In late July, they announced that they would be opening the tasting room every Thursday for cider and Italian tapas from 5 to 10pm. On opening night, they debuted a 2017 limited-production cider called Kingston Black, and served up all sorts of yummies, like cured meats, local and Italian cheeses, housemade pickles, and Castelvetrano olives. Check their Instagram for updated menus.
The World is Your OysterSince Memorial Day weekend, Brooklyn Oyster Party has been hosting a weekly oyster bar pop up at Westwind Orchard. Where have we been?!
