More Kinfolk Photos

The Kinfolk Table came to Tryon Farm. It all began with an early afternoon Cocktail at Parson's Chicken and Fish. Once guests arrived at Tryon Farm they found a harvest popcorn and cider bar, a hayride tour of the property, and a Kinfolk's pop-up pantry for tastings of local spirits, beer, and Rare Bird Preserves.

Kinfolk dinners always include a pie - Pleasant House Bakery created savory, seasonal pies meant for sharing, along with autumnal side dishes inspired by The Kinfolk Table cookbook. All served amid a long, candlelit table set with vintage tableware by Plate: Vintage Crockery Rental.

The night ended with a bonfire, fall inspired sweets (and perhaps another nip of whiskey) before heading back into the night.

Crescent Moon

Sat October 12-13, 2013 (PAST EVENT)

We're talking Saturday evening bonfire, wood-fired pizza, wine & star gazing! Stick around for an outdoor barn screening of Back to the Future!

Sunday morning is all about fitness + well being. All this will be rounded out at noon with guided tours of Tryon's new homes and 170+ acres of countryside. Make sure to fill your belly with a food truck lunch and craft beers. We haven't forgotten the kids! They will have a blast working on eco-crafts, taking haywagon rides and hunting for pumpkins.

Come for one, or come for all events!

Tryon Farm Trail 5/10/50K Run

May 18, 2013 (PAST EVENT)


Thank you to all who participated in, volunteered for, and sponsored our second annual Tryon Farm Trail 5/10/50K RUN!

The Tryon Farm Trail is a 10k loop through majestic grasslands, sloping dunes and towering beech and oakwood forests. Approximately 60% of the course is on densely wooded single track that follows existing deer paths. The remainder of the trail brings you through protected native grasslands of prairies and hayfields. At one point, the course takes you over a sod-roofed modern house that has been built into the landscape. The trail also includes a couple of small water crossings so expect to get your feet a bit wet and muddy.

Dîner en Blanc

PAST EVENT (August 18, 2012)

Tres chic! Another beautiful pop-up dinner in the Tryon barn is in the books! The rules were simple: (1) Wear white! (2) Bring white!.... You brought your own tables, chairs, foods, and settings. We brought the barn! The gorgeous weather was divine!

This year there was a $10 suggested donation to offset the modest hosting costs and to help fund the terrific conservation and education work by the non-profit Tryon Farm Institute. Thanks to all who attended and supported!

See you next year?!
