Farm celebrates community with First Fridays

Posted

As blue grass music floated through the summer air, families set on blanket covered hay eating watermelon and freshly served tacos Friday, July 7. The Star Acre Farms First Friday was in full swing with the Arvada Jam Band, the farm stand and local vendors.

“This is our community involvement,” said farmer Becky Scharfenberg, who runs the farm on North Alkire Street in Arvada with her daughter and son-in-law Nicole and Nathan Brix. “People sit around, talk to their neighbors and have a good time. It’s a lot of fun.”

The farm holds First Friday events June through October in which they open their farm stand, invite local vendors and host a blue grass band to encourage community.

The farm stand is open five days a week Wednesday through Sunday and Star Acres participates in four area farmers markets: Arvada, Golden, Edgewater and Cross Roads.
