Event Style: Multi-course Dinner with Paired Beverage - see the MENU!

This unique and immersive pasture-to-table event features an unforgettable five-course meal with paired beverages, live-fire cooking and a whole animal butchery demonstration. Gather with us at Forestry Camp, a 2-acre venue with a fascinating history that dates back to the 1930s and the New Deal, and enjoy tasty cocktails while deepening your understanding of the benefits of pasture-raised meats and dairy.

Whole animal butchery demonstration by Andrew Magazine, applied anatomist — butcher by trade, dancer by training, and homesteader by permacultural necessity. Author and activist Meredith Leigh and Rhyne Cureton, AKA “Pork” Rhyne, pork evangelist and international swine educator, will lead a fascinating discussion of the benefits of locally grown, pasture-raised meat and dairy.

 The Chefs are collaborating on a delicious menu, including highlights such as:

  • grilled oyster with smoky creamed greens, Mt. Dane cheese, charred pepper relish and pickle dust
  • shave house aged prosciutto, fromage blanc, smoked onion, tallow fat crouton, little greends
  • harvest summer gazpacho - watermelon, cucumber, sweet yellow bell pepper, fennel, lime, cilantro, and razzmatazz grapes with benne seed oil and borage blossoms
  • smoked beef crepinette, chanterelles, goat cheese espuma, tallow cracklins, eggplant puree, bordelaise, plum gel, little greens
  • Appalachia peach & sorghum jam cake with buttermilk ice cream, almond crumble and begonia blossoms
