Burger Night @ Bread and Butter Farm
Ages: 0 - 14+
Cost: Admission is free | Food $6-16
Parking: Yes - Field
Features: Picnic Area
Burger Night started innocently in 2011 as a way for Bread and Butter Farm to promote that they were raising grass-fed beef. They thought it sounded like fun to grill some burgers on a Friday afternoon for our Farm Store customers to let them try out the beef. The very first event they held, 150 people showed up! They were blown away. It hasn't stopped since. They have been amazed with the response and have done everything They can to keep up with the lively demand, serve the highest quality, delicious food, and open up this beautiful conserved farmland for everyone to enjoy.
At Burger Night they serve a full meal that comes almost entirely from their farm. They raise the cows who provide the beef, they bake the buns, and they grow the veggies for the salads. This year you can compliment your meal with a popsicle made from fresh seasonal berries from Adam's Berry Farm.
The music has not had to travel far either. Each week, Chris Dorman (founder of Music for Sprouts) brings amazing bands to liven up the event. Many of the bands are local and their set at Burger Night is a chance to celebrate their integral role in our local community.

This Vermont-only experience is an absolute delight. The timing is perfect. It starts early at 4:00 which means you are home by 8:00, if you choose to stay till the very end. There is just enough to do to keep everyone occupied but not over stimulated. It was sooo relaxing and oh yeah, the food was delish!
We met several...more

A great family event. My son loves the mulch mountains and visiting momma pigs and piglets. I love the veggie burger and sides.

I want to start off by saying this was a great event in a beautiful and relaxing setting. Tons of room for kids to run around, and nice live music, too.
We arrived at 5:00, anticipating a large crowd, but clearly this was not early enough. We waited in line for almost 45 minutes (my husband and I took turns standing in line and the other would watch the kids). When we finally got to the front we were informed that they were...more

The concept is nice, but sadly, the result is a little off. First of all, the way they take orders is convoluted and confusing. You need to get your food first, then pay a cashier, not the other way around.
But the biggest problem is its a real farm and it is dirty, unkempt and the amount of flies around is truly disgusting. It feels unhealthy because of this. I know its a farm, but that makes it feel unsuitable for serving food....more

I love takiing my family to Burger Night. We meet up with friends, and usually make new ones. The burgers and salads are to die for!

I have to agree with Sadie...very fun event, but pricey in that a side salad is $5! The $7.50 burger was GREAT but I needed two which makes it $15. Tons of people there though.

Cute idea, pretty well organized. However a little pricey. The actual burgers were delicious, and the bread is also great. However, sides are additional $5+, Juice $2, Cookie $1, with $7.50 burger adds up. BYOB & eat the yummy burgers, all in all a great night out!

What a great time! This place is a perfect spot to spend an evening outdoors with the family on a Friday night. With small kids, it's great to know you can get out and do something and still finish the night before anyone can get too tired, but there is also plenty to do to tire the kiddos out on the farm property while you hang out on a blanket and listen to music. Great people, delicious food to purchase (or, picnic with your own packed-in...more
