Learn the history of your food from the farmer who grew and cultivated it at the downtown Bristol Bar and Grille’s annual Farmer Appreciation Dinner on September 17. The six-course meal prepared by executive chef Bill Lynch will showcase a different local farm in each dish. Suppliers will be at the meal to speak about life on the farm, growing methods, history and products ahead of each course.
Participants include Hillerich Family Farm from Fern Creek, run by 24-year-old Troy Hillerich on his grandparents' and parents' land; Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program (RAPP), which provides refugees tools and land to grow food, nutrition and food preservation education, and access to local growers’ markets in Louisville; Stone Cross Farm in Spencer County; Mulberry Orchards in Shelby County; Marksbury Farm in Garrard County; Clark Family Farms, run by first generation farmer Todd Clark from Fayette County; and several other area farms and food producers also will have ingredients highlighted.
The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $65 per person, which includes tax and gratuity. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
Call 502-582-1995 for reservations, which are required.
