Farm to Fork Picnic returns this month

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - A big picnic where you can try food grown and raised at local farms cooked by local chefs.

That’s the mission of Farm to Fork, which is back in Charlotte this month.

Dozens of culinary pros are setting up at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden on Sept. 25 and they want you to arrive hungry.

Chefs will be teamed up with a farmer or an artisan to create small bites at action stations throughout the beautiful grounds of Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.

Mary Jayne Wilson, the founder of Thoughtful Baking Co. joined QC@3 to help us make Dutch Apple Pie.
