Yeah, you heard us right. Camp Bacon.  It’s this weekend and we’re getting ready to head out and join up with all of the Bacon Campers over at Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  If you didn’t get tickets, don’t fret.  There’s a Bacon Street Fair in Ann Arbor, on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012, with admission costing only what you would like to donate to the 4H Club of Washtenaw County.  They appreciate whatever you can give.

Camp Bacon is an event that we’re proud to be part of.  Zingerman’s is famous for their deli and their use of the absolute best products that they can source in everything they do.  We’ve had a great relationship with the folks over at Zingerman’s for decades and they’ve invited us to join them, along with several other excellent bacon purveyors, some great cooks, and even a food historian or two, for this year’s Camp Bacon event.

We’ll be sampling out our classic Applewood Smoked Bacon at camp on Saturday, along with sharing some Nueske family stories with the campers.  We’ll also serve up our rashers at the Bacon Street Fair on Sunday and lots of other bacons and bacon-related foods will be available for your tasting pleasure.  We’re making a fresh, summery dish for the street fair, but we won’t spoil the surprise, here.  Don’t miss this street fair if you’re in the area.

If you’re interested in attending Camp Bacon next year, get on the camp mailing list.  Remember, if you’re not a camper this year, you can still sample lots of great food at the Bacon Street Fair on Sunday, June 3rd, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market.  Hope to see you there!

Camp Bacon convenes on the evening of Thursday May 30, moves through a bacon-laden meal to a bacon tinged music to a day long delight of bacon learning and tasting, concluding on Sunday June 2 with a bacon street fair filled with bacon tasting, bacon crafts, bacon games and all around bacon fun. If you act quickly, you can be one of the lucky bacon lovers who gets to participate in all annual bacon gathering! Hope to see you at Camp!
