Mill Village Farm’s Sunday Supper Returns Bigger and Better Than Ever
Mill Village Farms’ Sunday Supper has always been a can’t-miss event. Last year’s supper alone saw over 130 guests enjoy a farm-to-table meal prepared by James Beard nominated Chef Nate Whiting, all while raising more than $35,000 for the noble cause that Mill Village Farms serves. Many organizations would see this as a successful business model and stick to that game plan moving forward.
Mill Village Farms, however, saw an opportunity to take the event to new heights and, while the concept remains the same, the scale has increased dramatically for the 2017 edition of their Sunday Supper series.
First and foremost, the Sunday Supper will feature not just one but three chefs preparing the evening’s meal. This year's supper will be a joint effort between Chef Alex Castro ("The Epicurean") from Larkin’s on the River, Alex George from GB&D ("The Young Gun"), and Chef Teryi Youngblood formally from Passerelle Bistro ("The Francophile"). The result will be an interesting fusion of styles from three highly regarded Upstate chefs.
In another break from tradition, the dinner is moving from the cozy confines of Serenity Farm between Greenville and Easley and instead setting up shop at Larkin’s Sawmill, a literal stone’s throw from Main Street in downtown Greenville. A lush garden setting will offer the sense of being on the farm but with all the amenities that only a venue like the Sawmill can provide.
Finally, if you are a veteran of past Sunday Suppers, you might recall that they were typically summertime events. Moving the date to the fall will allow the farm to put the spotlight on some of their fall crops that were not available in previous suppers. These fall flavors in the hands of the three talented individuals in the Sawmill kitchen promises to put a spin on the Sunday Supper that guests will not soon forget.
As always, proceeds from the event go to benefit the farm’s non-profit initiatives. In addition to supplying the market with fresh, locally sourced produce, Mill Village Farms offers employment and training opportunities to community youth that might not have such options available otherwise. From basic job skills to sustainable agriculture practices and an entrepreneurial spirit, your support of Mill Village Farms will help grow the farmers of the future. A delicious farm to table supper in support of a noble cause – what more could we possibly ask for?
