Join us on the White's Family Farm in Robertson County as we celebrate the "tobacco curing season" with a local farm dinner served family style under the stars for a magical evening. For the occasion, five chefs, four farmers, a brewer, a distiller, a singer and an historian come together to celebrate the country's rich history.

For over a century, the name "Robertson County" has been going with whiskey and tobacco. Located in Springfield, the city also known as the dark-fired tobacco capital of the world, Whites Family Farm has witnessed the many changes in the American tobacco industry. Held on October 28, their Smoke & Fire Farm Dinner will feature bourbon and Italian cigars by Avanti made from local dark tobacco. During the evening, Dr. Rick Gregory and Bo Adams will share stories about tobacco, Robertson County's second source of revenue.

The following menu has been created by Justin Dorris (Drunken Pig), Charles Hunter III (Salted Table Co.), Reggie Marshall (Reggie's Veggies), Sandy Ramsey (Burdetts Tea Company) and Doug Voise (The Depot). It features seasonal products from Whites Family Farm, Tennessee Grass Fed Farm and pork  by Gregory and Whites Farm.
