Start your Memorial Day weekend fun on Thursday May 26th with Happy Hour at Olamaie. They’ll have a happy hour menu of cocktails and appetizers. The suggested donation of $10 will benefit Dewberry Hills Farm and Slow Food Austin. On Saturday, April 30th a massive thunderstorm devastated their small, sustainable, pastured poultry farm. 75-mile-an-hour winds and torrential rain destroyed the movable chicken tents, flooded pastures, and many birds were lost. All of this, after financial loss due to damage from a tornado on December 13th. The farm is raising funds to be able to make significant infrastructure changes and be better prepared for any future weather events. Join us for happy hour and to show support for another farm in need.
