Your summertime will swing, swing, swing, as you first experience Live Jazz and a bountiful country brunch at Rosy Tomorrow Heritage Farm-a truly working farm set on picturesque pastures. Come to the Hundred Acre Jazz Brunch on June 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., it may well be one of the most memorable and fun Sundays you’ve ever had!
Rosy Tomorrow is unlike any other farm you could imagine, for several unique reasons. Adults and children alike gape in wonderment as they tour this hundred-acre Lee County farm, coming almost cheek to jowl with 500-pound heirloom Red Wattle pigs and their piglets, Texas Longhorn cattle that could star in a Western movie, hundreds of chickens pecking in their shaded pasture, and proud turkeys strutting and gobbling for all to admire!
Organic produce grows abundantly on the farm. This Florida bounty is yours to savor as you sample dozens of Executive Chef Scott Boyd’s culinary creations at the Hundred Acre Jazz Brunch, paired with popular Father Al & the Jazz Congregation’ s lively music!
This working farm is a compassionate farm-one where all the animals are only pasture raised (unlike Angus and other breeds who are factory fed), and the organic produce is more flavorful than what you’ll find in a grocery store. Speaking of the farm’s 100% grass-fed Longhorn cattle, do you know which sex has the horns? Don’t worry, this is an “open book” test question; have a look at them and you’ll quickly know the correct answer!
Kids flock to see Tim and Tom- the proudly parading pair of heirloom black and white turkeys.
Quick, do you know the difference between “pasture raised,” “free-range” and “cage free?”
The brunch is attractively set in a rustic, sparkling clean pine “barn.” Long wooden tables have attractive edible centerpieces of flowers, fruits and vegetables. All seats have a good view of the musicians, farm animals, tractors and silos.
The fun starts as Chef Scott Boyd flips four omelets at one time, and you get to taste truly farm-fresh eggs-farm to table was never this fresh!
The pig roast features juicy pork from the very Red Wattle pigs you’ve seen, cooked low and slow, and served at the carving station with house-made BBQ sauce and fresh baked brioche rolls. The just-harvested food is all natural and organic, a gourmet’s selection presided over by a French Culinary Institute trained chef and certified Sommelier. This will be the first farm experience for many visitors; Old MacDonald’s Farm never looked this good!
What’s to “dine for?” My faves are the roast bone-in ham, house-made Sicilian sausage, Rosy sausage and the crisp thick cut Red Wattle bacon. Combine these with your made to order fresh egg omelettes, fluffy biscuits and gravy, French Toast and lemon-ginger detox water, sweet teas and you’ve barely touched the surface! Seasonal broccolini, Napa cabbage, bok choy, melons, squash and other organically grown produce and herbs may grace your plate. There are vegan-friendly options, too.
