Super Bowl Sunday Party Prep

Some consider Super Bowl Sunday to be a holiday — and some would call it their favorite! No matter your love or indifference towards football, it’s a great time to get your family and friends together, eat some good food, and enjoy each other’s company! We’ve got some suggestions to make sure the day goes smoothly, so leave the menu to us and focus on your loved ones and your favorite team!

  • Super Bowl Sunday Cheese Tray

If you don’t want to do any cooking for Super Bowl Sunday, we get it. Some weeks Sundays are our only days to relax! But we don’t want you to be left with an empty stomach. That’s why our Cowfé is offering a special on Fair Oaks Farms Cheese Trays just for Super Bowl Sunday! Choose from Best Sellers, Best of Class, or All Time Favorites. Each style comes in small ($34.99, serves 15), medium ($54.99, serves 35), or large ($84.99, serves 55). Pick up a sausage and a roll of crackers at the Cowfé to complete the spread, and you’re all set! To place an order, call (877) 536-1194, extension 419. Please order by Saturday at the latest to guarantee freshness!

  • Dips Galore

Keep it easy, fun, and creative — make dips! Dips can please a wide range of tastes from salty, spicy, smoky, garlic-y, and so much more! Check out Fair Oaks Farms unique variety of seasonings in our Cowfé and Dairycatessan to create your own dips, or search the internet for some inspiration. Serve with a veggie tray, crackers, a diced baguette, and potato chips.

Cheese and dips alone might not do it. In this case, we say bring out the appetizers! Pick up your favorite Fair Oaks Farms cheeses, sausages, bacon, and other ingredients, and get creative! Try out a cheese, sausage, and fruit kabob, or even some bacon-wrapped micro potatoes. The more-indulgent, the better, let’s be real! Go wild on the cheese and bacon for some messy loaded cheese fries, or pick up some of our special seasonings to make the best pulled pork ever. Whatever you make, be certain you have enough for the entire day so your guests can continue to graze no matter how long the halftime show is!

Our Cowfé is currently open from 8 am to 5 pm, and all of our products can be found there or at our Dairycatessan.
