Doug Koenig (left) and Fritz Boettner of Turnrow Appalachian Farm Collective invite the community to kick off the 2019 growing season with a celebration at Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company.

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the Turnrow Appalachian Farm Collective will host a community dinner at Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company (862 Industrial Park Road A, Maxwelton).

The event will start at 6:30 p.m. This dinner will be a kickoff to the 2019 growing season and an opportunity to meet the farmers integral to our local food system.

Swift Level Fine Meats has teamed up with Turnrow to offer both meat and vegetarian chili made with farm-fresh ingredients and fresh baked bread. Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company will, of course, be serving their own unique craft beers.

Matt Kiser of Richwood will be on stage playing classic rock favorites.  Throughout the night, Turnrow will give away free swag.

Farmers from across the region will be in attendance as the dinner is also the kickoff event for a three-day farmer training sponsored by Turnrow Appalachian Farm Collective. The community is invited to meet their local producers and enjoy a fun evening in celebration of the 2019 growing season.

Guests may attend for free, but food and beverages must be purchased. Meal tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door. For questions, contact Beth Ryan by calling 304-573-4242 or emailing beth@sproutingfarms.org.
