Experience dinner where your food grows!

Though the holidays look different this year, it is still the perfect time to commune with family and friends. So gather your favs and join us at First Fruits Farm for our second farm to table experience. You will enjoy a trolley tour of the 1000 acre farm, 5-course dinner prepared by Virginia & Co, and a chance to learn from Black farmers in our area. Dinner will be served inside a heated barn.

Get there early to check out the Black Farmers’ Holiday Market from 12 pm to 2 pm. 

“Everyone knows Love is best shared…Loving our neighbor is the goal. And although we are not perfect, we aim to build relationships with those in our community: to give, to love and to grow.”

– The Browns

The farmers and the chef

Amazing Graze Barn began with Tay and Jason Brown as they celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary by renewing their wedding vows at the barn. Their farm, First Fruits Farm, was started to share the love of Christ and aid in hunger relief in Eastern NC.

Chef Natelege’s earliest memories of cooking began as a little girl as she sat and watched in awe of her own mother Helen, her grandmother Virginia and great aunt’s Reval and Saluda in their private sanctuaries, their kitchens. Virginia & Co., her full service catering company was birthed from her desire to share her joy of cooking and the healing she experienced through cooking. Her style of cooking has been molded by her culture, travels, and the people she has met along the way.

“Virigina & Co does an amazing job. The food is always delicious and the presentation is out of this world! Delicious and beautiful!!”

– K. Dixon
