Farming Man Fest at Indian Ladder Farms

Farming Man Fest 2018 logo

Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont has a new event -- Farming Man Fest -- coming up Saturday, August 18 that combines craft beverages and music. Blurbage:

Since adding a brewery and cidery to the farm several years ago, Indian Ladder has made a name for themselves in the farm brewing community. They've invited friends from over a dozen other breweries that will be bringing their own products for attendees to enjoy. This will be a great opportunity for beer and cider enthusiasts to not only try a wide range of new brews, but to also be able to meet and talk with the producers themselves. Taking that idea further, the farm is offering an educational aspect to the event with a hop picking demonstration earlier in the day at 11am. Indian Ladder Cidery and Brewery makes their products with hops, barley and apples grown on site.
Most people that visit Indian Ladder Farms are familiar with the orchards, the farm market, the brewery and its beer garden, but the festival itself will take place a few fields back in a beautiful setting nestled near the Helderberg escarpment. Gates will open at 2pm with live music from 3pm until 11pm. Food will be available for purchase

The list of producers and the music lineup are below.

Tickets are on sale now -- they're $25 ahead / $35 at the gate. "All ages are welcome, this is a family friendly event."
