It’s time for the 8th Annual Farm-To-Fork Food Invasion at Hampstead Farm! This year’s event brings the Guest “Invader,” Saw’s BBQ of Birmingham, to Montgomery for one night only.
Named one of the Best BBQ Joints in the US and featured in the New York Times, the Food Network, Men’s Journal and Zagat, Saw’s BBQ is renowned for its meats and favorite Southern staples. The dinner menu for the Food Invasion features all-time favorites including ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken, mac-n-cheese, loaded baked potatoes, greens, and their famous banana pudding. “Over 200 guests will join in the farm dinner, which we’ve set up as a laid back party this year,” says event organizer Anna Lowder. “Think big barn-style get together with great food and all your friends.”
In addition to Saw’s BBQ, there will be live music and an artist show exhibited throughout the Farm and in the Big Red Barn. Becky Miller is the featured artist, exhibiting her show entitled “artifacts.” This exhibition is the first in the Pop Up Art at Hampstead Series which continues throughout the Fall in different venues.
This annual farm dinner fundraiser is hosted by the Hampstead Institute, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to building community through education, wellness, and design. This year’s event beneficiary is the Montessori School at Hampstead. The Pop Up Art Series is also hosted by the Hampstead Institute, which board member and co-founder Harvi Sahota says is a natural focus of the non-profit. “We utilize the Hampstead Institute to show the impact of art in our everyday lives, and the value of design on our shared community. This event highlights both education and art – a great combination.”
