Here are highlights:
Pepper dishes from local chefs. A pepper tasting led by famed farmer Doug Jones, who runs the farm. He grows more than 40 varieties of peppers, mostly sweet. A talk by farmer Doug on plant varieties, seed saving and sustainable agriculture. Doug is a nationally known seed-saving expert, and we’re lucky to have him here. His other big thing is year-round growing.
Also, music by Holy Ghost Tent Revival. An “eco-industrial tour” of Piedmont Biofarm and Piedmont Biofuels. A crowning of a Pepper king and queen. A local pepper beer (interesting!). Other beer from Triangle Brewing Co. and local wines from Benjamin Vineyards.
