Becker Farms

Western New York

 

New York ~  Becker Farms five course 100 Mile Radius Dinner provide farm to table dishes paired with their wines & beer & is from within 100 miles.

I had the pleasure of visiting Becker Farms while attending the TMS Family Travel Conference.  Becker Farms is located at 3724 Quaker Rd., Gasport, New York and just minutes away from Niagara Falls, USA.  But, Becker Farms wasn’t new to me.  It is one of my favorite fall events to attend.

Having lived in Buffalo for 43 years of my life, and raising my 2 sons there, it was a yearly tradition for us.  I remember taking the kids to Becker Farms when they were very small.  And they are now 30 and 34.  At that time, they had a few things, like the hayride, apple picking, petting the animals and small store.  It has grown a lot since that time and offer way more than they did back then.

Once we arrived, we had a short introduction about the farm.  It has been in the family for 5 generations and is a 340 acre working farm.  They have Vizcarra-Vineyards, which is a part of the Niagara Wine Trail.  We also had some hot spiced cider and hot wine.

Next up was a hayride to pick some delicious Western New York apples.  That is something I miss living in Florida for the past 10 years.  The apples were delicious (not the kind, the taste!).

We headed off to pet some animals and have some fun.

We headed to the Tent for the 100 Mile Radius Dinner.  Their five course meals  provide farm to table dishes paired with their wines and beer. All food will be made from the farms harvest or produced within 100 mile of their location.  They are having a dinner on Friday, November 8th at 6:30 pm.  Find out more at BeckerFarms.com.

The dinner was fabulous.  We had hors d’oeuvres, Harvest Chicken Soup, Feta and Apples on Spring Mix, Bourbon Peach Pork Steaks, Herb Roasted Potatoes, and Delicata Squash with Maple & Bacon.  Each course was paired with it’s own wine.

We finished off the night with a bonfire and Cider Donuts and Hot Spiced Cider and Wine.  What a better way to end a fabulous weekend.

Great review Mary, had no idea you were a professional Becker Farms visitor! They have done a great job of transitioning from a traditional u-pick farm to an elegant, contemporary “agritourism” destination where all ages can have fun in the great outdoors. What a fun time we all had.
