Riot in the Pasture is Sunday

Published 12:00 am Thursday, May 14, 2015

Sunday will be the fifth Riot In the Pasture, held at Morgan Ridge Vineyards and Brewhouse.

The event is Bread Riot’s annual farm-to-table dinner and major fundraiser. Bread Riot is a local foods advocacy group in Rowan County.

Morgan Ridge Chef Jason Nain will again prepare food, as well as Salty Caper, which will make vegetarian pizzas using local flour, cheese and toppings.

New this year will be a whole hog barbecue duel, with pigs from Wild Turkey Farms and Two Pigs Farm. Pitmasters Seth Morris and Aaron Goss will go snout to snout with their skills.

Morris learned from his godfather and cooks under the banner of Shakerag Barbecue and is a woodsmoke purist. He’s starting law school in the fall.

Goss represents Carolina Malt House, his company that offers malts for beer, liquor and other uses. He has perfected his Goss Sauce recipe.

New Sarum Brewing has created and donated three special beers for the event, using local barley and hops.

Morgan Ridge offers their wine and two special beers for the event. Fullsteam Brewery has also donated beer.

Music will be by No. 9 Coal, Dave Meyers, Justin Dionne, Andrew Hodges, Micah Cunningham, Matt Church and Jeff Martinez.

Children can play with bubbles, hula hoops and arts and crafts.

Those attending should bring a lawn chair or blanket.

All the action takes place from 3-7 p.m.
