Farm to Fork 2018: Celebrate Local Food Year-Round!

Sunday, June 3: Farm to Fork Picnic at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro | 4 – 7 pm

The Farm to Fork Picnic will launch our year-round series on Sunday, June 3. A joyous celebration of local foods and the people who artfully produce and prepare them, Bon Appétit magazine called it “the country’s best all-you-can-eat feast”! We’ll return to the beautiful grounds of Fearrington Village, where dozens of our area’s best chefs, farmers, artisan producers and beverage providers will create a dizzying array of delectable dishes highlighting the bounty of the season. The Picnic also features fun activities for children, live music, and surprises for the whole family!


Sunday, November 4: Pop-up Dinner Featuring Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea Underground & Catering | 5:30 – 9 pm

We’ll reconvene on November 4 with a pop-up dinner featuring Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea Underground & Catering. Boehm’s monthly dinner events are the stuff of legend across the Triangle. The self-taught chef dazzles guests with a multi-course, hyper-local meal designed around a compelling theme, gathering diners in bucolic outdoor settings or dramatic indoor spaces not typically associated with fine dining. While specific details will not be announced until days before the event, we guarantee that Boehm will be cooking with seasonal ingredients at their peak, provided by some of our best known farm partners.


Thursday, December 6: Celebration of Southern Food with John T. Edge at Lavender Oaks Farm |6 – 9 pm
On December 6, we’ll present our final event of the series amid the fragrant setting of Lavender Oaks Farm in Chapel Hill with guest speaker John T. Edge, author of critically acclaimed  The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South. A prolific writer and insightful social commentator, Edge is director of the influential Southern Foodways Alliance. This celebration of Southern food will be a sort of moveable feast, with dishes prepared by six prominent chefs at different stations.  Beverages from local craft makers will be featured, along with live music and merriment.
