Join us to support F.A.R.M.S.

THE DIASPORA DINNER SERIES CONTINUES!!!! Chef David Thomas and Chef Heather Smith of Blacksmiths are coming together and cooking up a 5 course meal (with wine pairings) to support this amazing organization. Joining us at the table for this special event are Julius Tillery of Black Cotton Farms and founder of F.A.R.M.S Jillian Hershaw.

This event is to raise funds for F.A.R.M.S. One third of the ticket proceeds will go directly back to F.A.R.M.S. Silent auction proceeds will go to F.A.R.M.S. We will also be collecting donations the night of the dinner.

Help us promote local farmers and giving back to the communities where they reside.


F.A.R.M.S. stands for Family Agriculture Resource Management Services. F.A.R.M.S. exist to protect the family farmer from abuse through proper legal aging services while relieving hunger in the farmer's community.

This multifaceted organization aims to support these family farms by raising funds in order to pay farmers for their produce in order to keep these farms alive. The produce that is purchased through F.A.R.M.S. will then be donated to local food pantries to help feed the surrounding communities.

In addition to feeding the community, F.A.R.M.S. also provides legal aid to farmers who are suffering from any legal injustice. One such farmer is here in the DMV area. CLICK HERE to hear the story of Freeman Family Farm.
