Tasty food plus stimulating conversation

The organic and/or locally grown family potluck supper held on May 7 in Union Hall at the First Religious Society (FRS) was an evening of delicious food and spirited conversations, enjoyed by friends and neighbors here in Carlisle.

As the line of participants gathered with their plates and silverware ready to attack the platters of imaginative and creative dishes assembled on long tables at the side of the room, it was hard to know where to start and when (if ever) to stop. There was Bonnie Miskolczy’s appetizer of pink lady apple slices coated with lavender goat cheese, decorated with violas. Further along the table were Kay Fairweather’s crustless quiche made with herbs from her garden and local eggs and Leslie Thomas’ chili con carne, just to mention a few of the delectable dishes.

For desserts we were directed to a corner table where Art Veves’s chocolate-chip chocolate cake made with frozen shredded zucchini from his Foss Farm garden and Katharine Endicott’s orange cake, made with her duck eggs, were stand-outs.

The featured speakers for the evening were three members of the Robinson family, which has operated Springdell Farm in Littleton since 1931. Located at 571 Great Road (Route 119), Springdell raises all-natural, grass-fed Black Angus beef cattle. “Put a face on your food...It is important to our family that our customers can see our fields, visit our livestock, and know the family that is growing and producing their dinner,” is how the Robinsons explained it.

This event was sponsored by the FRS Environmental Action Committee. For more information on Springdell Farm, go to
