A Taste of the Carolina Piedmont
July 13-15, 2001

The first SFA Field Trip was co-hosted by the O. Henry Hotel of Greensboro, North Carolina — an old-world-style, community-focused hotel. The event celebrated the Carolina Piedmont and its prolific foods. There were storytellers—Dori Sanders, Clyde Edgerton, and Jeanne Voltz—and biscuit practicums. There were foods aplenty—country ham, boiled peanuts—and a tribute dinner to the likes of Bill Neal. And, of course, there were mini-field trips, where guests could tromp through the gardens at Old Salem, the Old Mill at Guilford, and Goat Lady Dairy.
