Watch us on Flavor, NC Thursday night!

Posted 11/13/2013 8:40am by Cheryl Ferguson.



Happy Frosty Wednesday, Farm Friends!  DVR Alert!!
Sending out our email a little early this week to remind you of our upcoming "15 minutes of fame" on the UNC-TV series, "Flavor, NC" on Thursday (11/14) night at 10 p.m. (rebroadcast on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.).  For our friends out of the viewing area, you can always watch the broadcast at http://video.unctv.org/video/2365069548/

The crew at Blue Water Media did a wonderful job at making the farm look great and they really took the time to talk with us to understand what we grow and how we grow it.  The focus of the episode is our garlic but they also spend time talking about our ginger, turmeric, lilies and blackberries.  After the visit to the farm, host Lisa Prince and the crew head over to Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen in Greensboro where our friend and great customer Chef Jay Pierce whips up some amazing garlic-focused recipes. Yumm-o!  We can't wait to get your feedback on the show!!
