HOBO CHEFIN' SHORELUNCH

By hook or by crook- The meal of low expectations & big surprises!

Our 2014 Season is Mother's Day, May 11- September 28th...
Saturday & Sunday Afternoons 1:00- 6 PM...

And at Group Outings "by arrangement" most anytime- Call the Farm!

Hobo Chefin' is a farm tradition evolving from our earliest days
of dream chasing,
farm construction & often after a long days work...

We would hang at the fire pit to cook, eat & drink, gloat and scheme...

Farmish funk, ingenuity & the need for ease has moved us along from

a fire pit, to tarp drawn shanties & onto what is now our cookin' shack...

THE BULLFROG'S FAMILY BEER & BEVERAGE GARDEN

It's Rain or Shine
unless the wet is comin' at us sideways...

So... Come have influence & enjoy... Incidental Drinking at the Fish Farm!

Snacks... Beverages... Eat My Fish Parphernailia Gift Certificates & Fun Food for the Fire Pit...
