In a unique collaboration, the regions most acclaimed cooks will pair with Piedmont farmers to prepare a picnic-style feast that celebrates our local foods and the people who grow and make them. The picnic will feature farm food representing the bounty and diversity of our region, including the season's first field-ripened tomatoes, head-to-tail heritage pork, a shrimp boil, grass-fed beef, a tasting tent filled with handmade craft food, including farmstead cheese, pickles, preserves, breads and cured meat; all local sno cones, spit-roasted lamb, grilled pizzas made from Triangle-grown wheat and produce grown in the field next door, and the season’s last strawberries.

Tickets may be purchased on-line at or by calling 919-755-3804. Advanced ticket purchase required. $50 per person; free for kids 12 and under.

All proceeds will help grow new farms and farmers across North Carolina.
