15 chefs, 15 pigs: It’s Pig Mountain!

NARROWSBURG, NY — Pig Mountain pig roast and veggie fest will once again be held on Main Street in Narrowsburg. This year’s event will be held Saturday, August 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. A foodie favorite, the roast will boast 15 chefs and 12 vendors offering food and drinks. Last year’s event drew hundreds, pigging out on everything from pulled pork to unheard of creations.
This year you will need to purchase one ticket per person to gain access to Main Street. You will get a bracelet, and from there you can eat and eat and eat. You can no longer feed more than one person on one entrance fee. Tickets cost $35. Beverages, as always, are available for purchase from the community table market.

Each year Pig Mountain gives its proceeds to a farm-based organization, and this year will partner with The Center for Discovery (TCFD), a national specialty center for the advanced care and treatment of children and adults with significant disabilities, medical complexities and autism spectrum disorders. Its work with organic farming and nutrition is cutting edge. TCFD is the second biggest employer of disabled people in the Northeast. It also is home to the Department of Nutritional Arts (DNA), which brings together the culinary program, the nutritional program and the farm. DNA is headed by Pig Mountain chef Cesare Casella.

Among the chefs, some are local including Paul Nanni from The Heron in Narrowsburg, NY, Heinle’s General Store in Cochecton Center, NY and Steve Mutter from Krystal Bowl in Callicoon, NY.
