Event information: Eating local is about more than just food. It’s about the relationship with the farmer, the connection to place and heritage, and the sense of community that comes from knowing the story behind your food. It’s about experiencing something fresh, seasonal, and grown here. On August 18, savor the food and culinary traditions of our Southern Appalachian Mountains, and meet your farms, artisans, and businesses working together to localize our food system.
Attendees will enjoy a sampling of local food tastings, small dishes, and seasonal fare served by Appalachian Grown farms and partners including Looking Glass Creamery, Sunburst Trout Farms, Imladris Farm, Green River Picklers, Waynesville Soda Jerks, Hickory Nut Gap Farm, Ultimate Ice Cream, French Broad Chocolates, HomeGrown, and more!
There will also be family friendly activities, and a silent auction offering exclusive local food experiences, including farm stays, winery and cidery tours, workshops, a private dinner, and other exciting local food experiences. A full list of auction items will be posted in early August.
