Chow Chow: Sowing Seeds of Equity

  • Hickory Nut Gap Farm

  • Address: 57 Sugar Hollow Road, Fairview, NC 28730
  • Times: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Admission: $150 per person

This is a Seated Dinner, with a cocktail hour followed by a five course meal with paired beverages, featuring 6 chefs and 5 craft beverage makers.

This dinner celebrates farmers of color, who make up only four percent of the total number of American farmers. Systemic and institutional racism has made it challenging or impossible historically for farmers of color to own or have access to land, obtain loans, lines of credit and the resources needed to be successful. And yet, these farmers bring the spirit of determination and the push for equity to the table. Farmers and Chefs will engage in conversation with each course to discuss both the challenges and the opportunities ahead. 

Speakers: Delia Jovel Dubon - Cooperativa Tierra Fertil, Billy Bond - Perma Pastures Farm, Sunil Patel - Patchwork Urban Farms & Patchwork Alliance, Raileigh Duschen - Conscious Lifestyle Coaching

Featured Chefs/Restaurants: Annie Pettry - Private Chef, Ryan Kline - Jargon, Antonio Perez - Holeman & Finch, Cleophus Hethington - Benne on Eagle 

Chow Chow events are 21+ except for Sunday Supper Series.
