Celebrate Asparagus @ White Silo Farm and Winery May 21 and 22

Recent research has noted that asparagus is one of the world’s healthiest foods and that it is being heralded as an anti-inflammatory food because of its nutrients. Among these anti-inflammatory nutrients are asparagus saponins, including asparanin A, sarsasapogenin, protodioscin, and diosgenin. It is also rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E, and the minerals zinc, manganese, and selenium.

What better way to celebrate this vegetable, that has been considered a delicacy since ancient times than to go to the 9th Annual Asparagus Festival at White Silo Farm and Winery located on 32 Route 37 E in Sherman on May 21 and 22.

White Silo has planned to serve six scrumptious dishes prepared from their freshly picked asparagus that they grow on the farm. The menu includes: asparagus BLT’s, asparagus gelato, asparagus flatbreads, asparagus frittata, asparagus carpaccio and grilled asparagus with White Silo Quince mustard. Food items are $5 – $6.

To add to the fun, there will also be tours of the winery and farm as well as live entertainment on both days. On Saturday, Guy Tino will perform and on Sunday Martin Meyer will provide the entertainment. This is a child friendly event. Admission is free and reservations are not required.
