Event: Stone Farms Summer Picnic

Join the Barley Engineers for a late summer potluck at the picnic-friendly Stone Farms. A stone’s throw from their brewery in Escondido, Stone Farms is a relaxed location to enjoy some vittles, drink some beers from their taps, and stroll the farms. We’ll meet at 1 PM and stay until we get hot, tired, or they kick us out (6 PM). There are shaded picnic areas scattered around the farms and there should be plenty of space for us all, feel free to bring any of your favorite picnic games.

Please sign up to bring a main, side, or desert to serve at least a dozen people. I’ll update the form or send an email out of we get over-loaded on any particular dish.

Stone Farms also appears to be dog-friendly, but if anyone has dogs that like to eat chickens or peacocks, Stone would probably be pretty unhappy.

Note: The barn only has water and Stone beer available. We cannot bring any of our own alcohol onto the premises.

– 1:00 PM until we get tired or they kick us out (6:00 PM)
