Riot in the Pasture to celebrate local food

SALISBURY — A Riot in the Pasture to celebrate local food and local farmers will take place from 3-7 p.m. Sunday, May 22 at Correll Farms at 1185 Woodleaf-Barber Road in Cleveland.
The event is hosted by Bread Riot and Correll Farms. Bread Riot recently received its non-profit status and the board of directors is excited to bring together its supporters for a celebration.
Bread Riot is a local foods advocacy group whose mission is to cultivate a thriving local economy by facilitating a supply of locally produced food, utilizing sustainable farming practices and focusing on whole-life issues, education and environmental concern.
“This is an opportunity for Bread Riot supporters to meet and mingle with others interested in locally grown foods,” said Christine Wilson, president of Bread Riot’s board of directors. “The best part is we’re hosting the event on a real farm and there are lots of fun, family activities planned.”
Between 3 to 4 pm, children can enjoy activities such as sheep shearing and games followed by a farm tour at 4 p.m.. Local musicians will perform throughout the afternoon with the featured band, No. 9 Coal, filling the air with bluegrass music from 5 to 7 p.m.
A local feast will be served at 5 p.m., with meats and produce from area farmers highlighted in dishes prepared by The Sweetest Thing.
Morgan Ridge Winery will be on site as well, offering a wine-tasting. Attendees are invited to bring a blanket to picnic with the family, though some seating will be provided. The Woodleaf Community Center will serve as the rain location, if necessary.
Tickets are $15 per adult and $5 per child. They are available online at www.breadriot.org or at select sponsor locations including: Simply Good, Metcalf Chiropractic and Salisbury Pediatrics. Tickets can also be purchased at area farmers markets, including Salisbury-Rowan Farmers Market this Saturday, Correll Farms at the Davidson Farmers Market this Saturday and Bame Farms at the China Grove Farmers Market this Friday.
