Have you ever walked up to a place and knew you were at the culmination of a dream? That’s certainly what Shooting Star Horse Farm in Greensboro looked like as the setting of Sunday’s 3rd Annual Community Table, a yearly celebration of all things local by Triad Local First. The following photos don’t really do the beauty and charm of this brand new horse farm justice, which was unveiled for the first time just for this event. What’s more, this celebration also featured local lovers and local goodness from all over the Triad and North Carolina. Zeto Wine was showcasing Raffaldini and RayLen Vineyards & Winery; There was Red Oak Beer; The Fresh Market was there with a pre-dinner selection of crackers, fruit, cheeses and meats. Biscuitville had their party trays of miniature biscuits and sausage rolls and the 1618 Concepts “On Location” food truck and chefs churned out a 3-course meal of local ingredients for over 120 people. Everything was delicious. The NC wine…awesome accompaniment. This was a sold-out with a waiting list event. And that just means that more people are loving local and I just LOVE that! This event was top-notch, peaceful, with incredible music and great company. Definitely a must do in 2014.
There are even more photos on my Facebook page. Next year is sure to be another hit at another gorgeous farm, so stay tuned and I hope I see you at the next Community Table!
