I had some more pictures that helped to sum up what we were up to last Sunday. Its great looking back at these shots. Having our first event at Dunbar Urban Garden Project was the rug that tied the room together. Without having a space like this I don’t think the impact would have been the same. What projects like this are doing are inspirational to me and for the future of good food in Little Rock. So with the help of Damien, Chris and Susan from Dunbar we were even more successful. Thanks guys! And here is to the up and coming events that we are working on now!
So I have been wanting to wait for some of our photos (professional) to come back to post. But I couldn’t wait and I have some from the phone that will work great.
Butcher & Public just threw its first event featuring a whole roasted pig. The event in our eyed was epic. We used a pig from Freckle Face Farms, produce and the likes from Armstead Mountain Farm, Laughing Stock Farm, North Pulaski Organics, Little Rock Urban Farm and Loblolly Creamery. Loblolly had some delicious AR black apple cider.
We also had some great locally brewed beers from Vinos and Flyway Brewing. Both were delicious and we were excited to taste Matt Fosters American Brown Ale made with hops from Dunbar Urban Garden.
The products spoke for themselves and make us look good for using them. This is essentially what B&P is striving to be and work towards. Utilizing the rich resources that AR has to offer. Using locally sourced while animals and produce. And staying inspired by what the different seasons have to offer.
So now back to the drawing board to wok on the next event! We are really excited about this and all the ways we can make the next one better. So stayed posted for more details on the next one and for more pictures.
So to wrap it up we see a great future for Little Rock and the AR food scene. The turnout we had was overwhelming and humbling. This tells us that what B&P is working towards can be supported by the community!
