Event Details


We will be rescheduling Abra for Summer 2020

Willowbrook Mill welcomes

Abra Berens back to Northport!

It's been a minute since Abra farmed her way into our hearts at Bare Knuckle Farm. We've missed her smile at the summer farmer's market at the Northport Marina. In the meantime, this talented chef has been off creating magic and wonder and writing Ruffage; her first cookbook that is a rising star entry into the ranks of the New York Times and Bon Appetite's top twelve Best New Cookbooks of Spring 2019! Abra has been busy traveling the country at promotions and book signing, and being interviewed by a variety of media celebrities, like the crew at CBS This Morning.
