Victory Teaching Farm

I wasn’t sure what to expect at the 4th Annual Down to Earth Farmraiser but I discovered on this pleasant October evening, that farming is alive and well in mid town Mobile.

Local chefs from twelve area restaurants and businesses wowed the crowd of hungry guests with their bite sized delectable creations.  The thirty-five dollar tax deductable ticket admitted me to the event along with two glasses of wine and multiple samples of the various chefs’ bounty.

THE RESTAURANTS

The restaurants included Noble South, Nourish, Haberdasher, Red and White, Pour Baby, Bay Gourmet and Old Dutch.

THE FARM

Overlooking the plants

Victory Teaching Farm is all about sustainable, clean locally sourced food.  It is South Alabama’s first and only teaching farm located in mid town Mobile on Rickarby Street. While the farm provides ample produce each year for the local area, it also provides internships, volunteer opportunities and fresh pick produce markets for locals.

This event gets bigger and better each year.  Mark your calendars for early October, 2019. You will not want to miss this locally sourced food event. Come hungry, you will not be disappointed!

Roadrunner Journeys was created as an outlet for my photography and travel writing. My passion is travel and sharing my stories by documenting my travel memories, one photograph at a time. While usually a solo traveler, my trips are well planned adventures that provide for maximum fulfillment and affordability both internationally and domestically. My blog features adventures from points around the US, Canada and Europe as well as long weekend road trips, especially if one features cheesecake. A well thought out tour of the northern Florida locations of the Cheesecake Factory may bring some gastronomic excess but it was well worth the adventure of traveling the back roads of the state. The Alabama Gulf Coast is my home which provides me with access to beautiful sunsets, seafood and inspiration.
