Alright folks, COVID got the spring 2020 Gathering cancelled, so I'm going to try again in 2021.
This event is not meant to overshadow the Fall 2021 Gathering that Farmer holds, but an addition for members that may not be able to attend.

When: April 30, May 1, May 2 for the hardcore people that can hack it
Where: Just North of Hershey, Pennsylvania at my family farm. Not quite God's country, but not the Armpit of America either.
Who: ALL members that wish to attend. I don't care where you're from.. if you want to attend, make your intentions known.
IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND : PM me for an address
RV's/ Campers: We have limited on site RV/ Camper areas that are level. We do have electric in the barn, and well water though the water can be a little rough at times. I will work on a filtration system between now and then. If you're bringing one, let me know ahead of time so I can plan for it.

*****ALL UPDATES will be posted here in the Original Posting at the bottom of the page. Check back often.


*******THIS IS A NUT FREE EVENT. ABSOLUTELY NO TREE NUTS are permitted due to food allergies*** I cannot stress this enough.



There are MULTIPLE grocery stores, campgrounds, gas stations, and modern conveniences within a 3 mile radius, and also quite a few hotels. I'm not yet sure about the Spring 2021 Hershey Park schedule, but if you want more info I can do some digging.

This will be a family friendly event, so plan to act accordingly.

I have room for a few campers... working on a water filtration system for you guys. Bring a garden hose or 2 for fresh water as we have a well on site.

I'm going to work on getting Kingsford charcoal for you guys that want to cook with charcoal, and for those that want to cook over wood, I can get that too.. just need to get a head count by the beginning of April.

If the weather is bad, we will be eating inside the barn. ALL cooking will be done outside well away from the barn, so bring a pop up canopy if you have one.

ETA: I'll be talking with one of the major bologna makers to see if they can send out a rep. to talk to us about some of what they do. I gave pc farmer pc farmer a sample of their product at the Fall 2020 Gathering, so I hope they can do something again for us.

Yup same here even my wife. :emoji_laughing:
But there is no need for you supply all our needs that's up to us to bring our own cooking supplies. Although wood is hard to transport in a camper. But charcoal and spices the meat etc. is up to us.

pc farmer pc farmer .. how did you like the bologna I sent to the fall gathering? I'm off on Friday, so I'll be stopping at Seltzer's on my way home from my errand to get intel.

Folks that plan to attend, I CANNOT stress this enough... NO TREE NUTS OR PEANUTS in anything you make. A few youngsters that will attend have a strong allergy to nuts.

I planned on eating and gathering in the top of the barn, and chef jimmyj chef jimmyj , I can get you there no problem. Just let me know in advance.

There will be NO OPEN FLAMES within 50' of the barn. No smoking allowed except outside in a designated areas. I don't mean to be rude, but this barn is old, and I intend on using it for a few more years to store hay and equipment.

Actually, my friend has a son with nut allergies... so I'm looking out for you all, I'll edit my post to include peanuts. My bad.

ETA: It seems as though I can no longer edit my original post.. that is going to be a problem.
