Farm to Fork NC: Celebrate Local Food Year-Round!
Sunday, June 3: Farm to Fork Picnic at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro
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!
Tickets for the picnic are $100 per adult, $50 for youth ages 13-20 (no alcohol), and free for children ages 12 and under.
Sunday, September 16: Pop-up Dinner Featuring Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea Underground & Catering
We’ll reconvene on September 16 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.
Tickets for this event are $200 per person.
Thursday, December 6: Celebration of Southern Foodwith John T. Edge at Lavender Oaks Farm
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.
Tickets for this event are $45 per person.
All proceeds benefit farmer training programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and the W.C. Breeze  Family Farm Extension and Research Center.
