Thursday afternoon found a hive of activity at Second Baptist Church in Greenville preparing for the inaugural Farm to Fork dinner Saturday.
The sell out crowd has several things to look forward to according to University of Kentucky Agriculture Agent Darrell Simpson. The 200 plus guest list does have the hottest ticket in town because the event has been sold out for some time and there’s a waiting list for tickets, if they were to become available.
Simpson said, “Saturday morning we are going to be hustling. The youth, 4H and FFA are going to be serving the sit down meal. These meals are happening all over; and the County Extension Council decided months ago do do this, The council is made up of people from all walks of life, right here in Muhlenberg County. We’ve done programs in the past, service type things for the community and somewhere around July of ’17 we came up with the idea of this meal, and started really working on it steady in January.”
“I wish we had more tickets, everyone has been so supportive of this, with the sponsors and the community itself. This is a great community, we see this when we take these things on, just an outpouring of support” Simpson continued. “We hope everyone leaves Saturday saying ‘that was fun, the food was great, I learned something, that was worth my time and my money.’ ”
