meet the farmers
On Sunday, December 16, in the beautiful Durham Hotel, we offered gratitude for nourishment and those that provide it. Cook, farmer, creator and food curator Gabrielle Eitienne guided us through an experience that left us fed spiritually, emotionally and physically; full of joy and abundance. Here are the farmers whose labor and care made our meal possible. We encourage you to support them as they support us.
Brother Bernard Obie of Abanitu Organics in Roxboro, North Carolina
Howard Allen of Faithfull Farms in Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Ryan Bethea of Oysters Carolina in Harkers Island, North Carolina
Justin Robinson of Earthseed Land Collective in Durham, North Carolina

Thank you to the Durham Hotel for being wonderful hosts. This would not have been possible without their support.
