Father’s Day is almost upon us, so Hickory Farms has compiled a couple of fun ideas you can carry out for Dad! No matter where your dad’s interests lie, a personalized gift or a fun day filled with his favorite activities will remind him of your love and appreciation. Sometimes just spending quality family time together can be the best gift of all, especially for a family that’s always headed off in different directions. Plan an afternoon watching Dad’s favorite action thrillers. You can eat popcorn, order a pizza and let Dad control the remote all day long. What’s your Dad’s passion? Does he love to root for the home team, or would he enjoy spending a day at an outdoor music festival? Maybe he loves drooling over antique cars or heading out on the lake. Whatever it is, arrange a day filled with his favorite activities and accompany him with a smile. Hickory Farms carries a variety of gift baskets any dad would appreciate, like our Timeless Traditions gift basket with a bottle of Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc, pears, apple, beef summer sausage and two different cheeses.

May is National Barbeque Month, and you can celebrate the occasion by cooking up a delicious meal full of smoky, flavor-packed treats. With these scrumptious recipes from Hickory Farms, you can grill up a healthy dinner from start to finish.

Allow the mixture to rest before kneading in some sour cream. Then, roll the dough out into flat pieces and throw them on the grill for a nice char. After flipping, finish the flatbread with your choice of toppings, or with one of our delicious cheeses. Entree For the main course, opt for a sweet and smoky grilled pork tenderloin. Start by marinating your tenderloin in a mixture of maple syrup, cider vinegar, garlic and our tangy Sweet Hot Mustard.

4 Patriotic Ways to Celebrate Memorial Day

Hickory Farms has long been a supporter of our country’s military forces, and we want to join our fellow Americans in honoring our fallen heroes on Memorial Day. Some of the best ways to celebrate this holiday and kick off the summer season include: Attending a patriotic parade. Kids always love the excitement of seeing a marching band and soldiers in a parade, but take the time to explain their significance so they can understand the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform. Have a family picnic. After the parade has passed, take your family on a picnic. Our signature Beef Summer Sausage and a variety of cheeses from our Savory Cheese Collection make delicious appetizers atop our Olive Oil & Rosemary Crackers. You can keep the kids busy while dad is firing up the grill by bringing a baseball and glove. This is the perfect opportunity to give your throwing arm (and your little sluggers!) a workout. Catch a local fireworks display. Many cities stage patriotic displays after the sun goes down on Memorial Day to honor the lives lost in service to our country. Make sure you arrive early to spread your blanket or set up lawn chairs. Don’t forget …
