Join GROW Local South Texas for an intimate farm dinner in the heart of Chapman Ranch.

    Hosts Scott and Kacy Frazier invite you and yours to their lovely home at Thunder Cattle Ranch for The Coastal Bend’s culinary event of the year.

    Guest Chef James Cantor is using the freshest local and regional produce, meats and libations to prepare our annual multi-course celebration of South Texas’ GROWing local food system.

    • Dine al fresco under beautiful South Texas stars.
    • Deliciously-prepared and sustainably-grown food from within 200 miles of your dinner plate.
    • Lovely pastoral setting you won’t want to miss.
    • Beer and an exclusively-created ‘adult’ kombucha from Lazy Beach Brewing

    Your place at the table is set.

    What does ‘South Texas farming’ mean to you?

    Once upon a time, it meant food.

    The roots of South Texas’ food system were once deep and strong. Over the decades we strayed from our food-based path creating a ‘food desert’ according to the USDA.

    As GROW Local South Texas reestablishes our once-thriving local food system, we’re learning that success requires the merging of tradition and innovation. Bringing together our history and defining our future.

    From young to old, rural to urban, hoof to feather, fungi to bacteria, we are connecting all the healthy components of our community to cultivate access to local food and a vibrant agricultural food economy.

    This year, our Farm to Table Dinner and Fundraiser heads to the farm for our first in-the-field farm to table experience. Our multi-course, expertly-prepared menu, beers and wines are all sourced within a 200-mile radius of your dinner plate.

    We are all GROWing toward tomorrow. What will our legacy be?

    The stars of the show are the hard-working local and regional food producers who provide every ingredient of our meal. The list of local food producers involved in this year’s Farm to Table Dinner and Fundraiser is GROWing daily. Check back soon for an updated list.
