Michael and Regina Hampton of Food Initiative hosted the inaugural Hog Roast Hootenanny. “We thought it would be a good, family fun event. So, we invited the community out to the farm for an old fashioned hog roast,” Regina Hampton said. There were yard games like Corn Hole and over-sized tic tac toe, and a bonfire with s’mores. Kids could play and see the animals. There were piglets, chickens and Tennessee Fainting Goats. Under the big tent, guests were served a lunch of pulled pork barbecue, ribs and traditional sides like macaroni & cheese. Food Initiative offers a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Families can buy an 11 or 22 week plan. Food Initiative then picks and provides eggs and fresh items from the garden, May through September. Food Initiative also offers a summer youth program, field trips for all ages and a team building program. For more information go to www.thefoodinitiative.org.
