Local and sustainable eating is becoming increasingly popular, and summer is a big time for weddings. One of the hottest trends today is the “homegrown wedding.” Brides and grooms are looking for fun menus filled with seasonal selections and local fare. One Greensboro based business is promoting a "marriage" of seasonal recipes with romantic receptions. It's what this company calls “Plow to Vow.”
"We are a unique wedding destination. We have everything you need on one property" said Lee Comer, owner of Iron Hen Café and Catering & Events. “We have a breath-taking farm, complete with acres of scenic Carolina countryside, grazing animals, and a renovated barn".
Comer's parent company, Fresh.Local.Good. food group, sources more than 80% of its meat and produce from local farmers; including its grass fed and finished beef, which comes from Summerfield Farms located just 15 miles from their kitchen. "This is a working farm, and you can really taste the difference between this beef and those served by other restaurants. Plus, their commitment to rotational grazing and other sustainable farming practices helps the environment", said Comer.
These days, weddings, rehearsal parties, and receptions are becoming less formal and more creative, and that fits perfectly with their approach to fun-filled events which can be individually tailored to each couple. This farm offers couples a variety of unique settings to stage their event and create an unforgettable way to get hitched.
