What is “Riot”?

Riot in the Vineyard is Bread Riot’s largest annual fundraiser, a festive farm-to-fork picnic. Bread Riot is a nonprofit that supports local agriculture and the Salisbury Farmers’ Market. We have programs like Winter Harvest,  Holiday Harvest, Share the Harvest (a new food aid program) and various farm-to-fork dinners. We also support other nonprofits’ farm-to-fork benefit efforts (see the Burger Bash).

Menu (subject to some last minute substitutions based on product availability):
By Jason Nain, Morgan Ridge Vineyards’ staff chef:

We will also offer an opportunity to taste barbecue from three farms and pitmasters:
Wild Turkey Farms, Two Pigs Farm, Thomas Family Farm.

Once again we’ll again have  Seth Morris of Shakerag barbeque and Aaron Goss of Carolina Malt House as our lead pitmasters. Greg Page will be joining the smoke team as Seth’s apprentice.

Morgan Ridge Vineyards-Brewhouse has some of North Carolina’s best wine. And will be making two special beers with Rowan County barley!

New Sarum Brewing Company has generously donated a full lineup of beers that they have crafted special for this event. (And you might not know that they already make many beers that already feature Rowan County barley malted at Riverbend Malt House!) Their specials will also feature local hops!
