The Farmher and The Chefs

Special first ever farm dinner at Rodgers Greens and Roots Organic Farm with Farmher Ashley Rodgers and Chef Thomas Mckeown, Chef Gizzy Barton, Chef Ryanne Rothenberg, and Chef Taria Camerino.

Join us on Saturday September 21st for a one of a kind vegetable focused dinner, all produce served is grown right on our farm, meat from Riverview Farms, cheese from The Woodsman and Wife, and milk/eggs from Woodsong Farm. We have beer from Wild Heaven Brewery in Avondale Estates, Gin from Old Fourth Ward Distillery, liqueurs from Thatcher's Organic, and sustainable wines from Eddie.

This is your opportunity to explore Rodgers Greens and Roots, connect with the farmers who grow our delicious produce, and devour the exquisite food created by amazing chefs.

Rodgers Greens and Roots sells over 2000 pounds of produce to the Metro Atlanta Area each week, you have probably already dined at one of the 25+ restaurants we sell to, enjoyed our produce in a Fresh Harvest basket or purchased our produce from us at the farmers market!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMHER!

Ashley Rodgers has an impressive resume as a female farmer in the south. She has built a name for herself in her 10 year organic farming career in Georgia. March of 2016 Ashley bought 64 acres of land along the Chattahoochee River in Douglas County (just down the road from Sweetwater Creek State Park). Ashley and her farm crew spend endless hours, days and weeks growing some of the best local produce in the Atlanta area.

If you follow us on social media you see the beautiful part of our work. what you don't see are the losses, frustrations, and failures we experience on the farm each week. One of the most upsetting things we have been experiencing the last 3 years is food waste. Each week we leave market and watch hundreds of pounds of produce go bad in the intense Georgia heat. It may be 80 degrees outside but it's almost 100 inside our box truck. Not only is this heartbreaking to watch given the amount of blood sweat and tears we put into growing our produce but it also hurts us financially. We need your help upgrading our box truck from a 1998 diesel to a refrigerated box truck. Upgrading our delivery truck does not only mean less food waste, it also means the food we sell will maintain greater quality and freshness for our market customers, fresh harvest customers, and local chefs.


This is a kid friendly event. Children under 2 eat free. Child tickets Available.

**ALL SALES FROM THIS DINNER WILL GO TOWARDS THE PURCHASE OF OUR REFIGERATED BOX TRUCK!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!**
