Get dirty for dinner

I had to reach out a very long way to get information on the 3rd annual Soil to Soul Farm Dinner: "Tiny Chef" Susanne Dillingham, one of the organizers, is in Italy at the moment. But she'll be back in time for the dinner July 13 (rain date July 14) at Windy Hill Farm (in New London, between Concord and Albemarle). 

Dillingham and chef Craig Barbour of Roots Farm Food will be the cooks for the five-course dinner. As an example, the main course features a moonshine-basted whole roasted hog wrapped in pancetta and served over a sweet pea and Silver Queen corn succotash. 

Tickets are $75 cash or check ($80 by credit card) and reservations are due by July 8. You can get tickets through Roots, Windy Hill Farm or using Paypal at Dillingham's Tiny Chef website,

And since the evening starts with a walking tour of the farm, dress casual and comfortable. Dirt is optional.
