Sunday was not a typical scene at Wyndridge Farm with craft beer, games and live music with acres to spread out and distance socially.

Some of the guests left a little hungry because Piper Belle’s BBQ ran out of food after just a few hours.

Food truck dining could be a popular alternative for people who are concerned with crowded restaurants.

Dave Shirey from Piper Belles BBQ says “I also feel like this brought upon a new wave of entertainment for the community. You get home from work and don’t want to go out to eat, you have a food truck coming.”

Typically, this outdoor venue would be got-to location for wedding receptions, but those weddings have been rescheduled or cancelled.

“It’s absolutely been very difficult, especially on our brides and grooms, that had weddings planned and we had to push them into later years or months,” says Eicholtz.
