Farm to Village Event for ASAP a Success

Historic Biltmore Village businesses and ASAP partnered for a perfect evening under the stars.

This inaugural event which is sure to be repeated served as a fundraiser for the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.

As the evening progressed, the twinkling lanterns came to life as we lined Boston Way with farm tables and served a five-course gourmet dinner, from appetizers to desserts. Guests had the chance to meet and mingle with our award winning chefs, brew masters, local farmers and a vineyard owner.

ASAP works diligently to promote local farms and we served fresh produce and meats supplied by those farms. The meal featured some amazing dishes provided by The Cantina., Catawba Brewing, Corner Kitchen, Doubletree Catering, Fig, Hi-Wire Brewing, Red Stag Grill, Rezaz and The Village Wayside.

The event was sponsored by Mtn. Merch, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyard, West Carolina Water Treatment, Wells Fargo, and The Village Group of Oppenheimer and Co. Inc.

The total monies raised have not been tallied yet but a significant donation will be presented to Asap in the coming week.
