Rural Resources hosts 7th annual Incredible Corn Dinner

GREENEVILLE (WJHL) – Rural Resources invites the public to celebrate East Tennessee’s summer bounty at the 7th Annual Incredible Corn Dinner. The dinner will take place at Still Hollow Farm, a Greene County Century Farm located at 3005 West Allens Bridge Road. Guests will be treated to an evening of fine dining of locally grown food prepared by Ella Price and live music by JB and the Wild Honey Band.

The multi-course meal will showcase foods produced in Greene County and the surrounding region. As always, heirloom Incredible Corn grown right at Still Hollow Farm will be the star of the meal. Some spirits will be provided courtesy of Greeneville Wine & Liquor.

The Incredible Corn Dinner has become a highlight of summer in Greene County.

“We look forward to this beautiful farm-to-table dinner every year,” said Sally Causey, Rural Resources’ Executive Director. “It’s a true celebration of what we can grow right here and it supports growing our young people and community.  That’s the best combination as far as I’m concerned!”

Rural Resources is a non-profit organization based in Greeneville which has worked for 23 years to connect farms, food, and families through agricultural education, food security work, and market development.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Farm & Food Teen Training Program, which teaches at-risk teens how to grow, cook, and market their own food, as well as Farm Day Camp, which gives preschool through elementary aged children the opportunity to see where their food comes from on a real working farm.

“We’re excited about this delightful night of local food and entertainment, all to benefit the young people in our programs,” said Causey.  “At Rural Resources we are all about connecting farms, food, and families. This event does just that while supporting our programs that make those connections.”

The Incredible Corn Dinner will take place on Saturday, July 16 at 7 p.m. Still Hollow Farm is located at 3005 West Allens Bridge Road in Greeneville. Tickets to the dinner are $55. Corporate tickets are $850.
