Seasoned Sunday

Sunday, November 10th, 2019
1 – 5 pm

Wedge Oak Farm
3964 Old Murfreesboro Road West
Lebanon, TN 37090

Cost: $75/person  (No ticket required for children 12 and under)

Seasoned Sunday will feature 6 awesome local chefs, each preparing sausages made from Wedge Oak Farm’s pasture-raised, heritage breed meats – lamb, pork, chicken, and duck. In addition to the meats, there will be artisan cheeses, fresh vegetables, and of course, beer! Five of Tennessee’s best breweries will be pouring and Angel’s Envy will be on hand with a bourbon cocktail and premium whiskeys.

Seasoned Sunday is a family-friendly event with live music and s’mores made with Olive and Sinclair chocolate and homemade graham crackers and marshmallows from my sweet friend Erin!

100% of the proceeds from Seasoned Sunday goes to the Tennessee Local Food Summit, which promotes the production and consumption of healthy, local food. More details can be found here, and tickets for the event can be purchased here.
