For over 60 years, Witmer Fire Protective Association has held Ox Roasts as a major fundraiser to fund our operations. We typically hold three Ox Roasts per year. The second Saturday in February, third, fourth (traditionally) or fifth Saturday in April (possible change due to Easter holiday) and the third Saturday in October.
Almost all food is made on site, and all meals are currently drive-thru take-out. Our Ox Roasts are known the nation over for providing a good hearty meal to all those who come to enjoy it. We have regular customers from across the street, as well as the states of PA, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, New York and beyond (sometimes even Florida!) We even have people pick up an extra take-out or two to enjoy later!
NEW IN OCTOBER 2021:
Due to supply chain constraints, we will not be using our “pizza box” and will be using a two container system. The “hot meal” will still be packed in our tradition, 3-bin, tin container. The rest will be placed into a foam container. We will be placing meals into paper bags for easy loading into your cars.
Our menu includes:
- Slow Cooked Beef
- Homemade Filling
- Home Cooked Potatoes
- Lancaster County Sweet Corn
- Homemade Gravy
- Locally Made Rolls & Butter
- Cole Slaw
Our Ox Roasts are great for families, destination clubs/groups, day trips, or lunch/dinner on a whim!
