Back on the Farm

Back on the Farm

Celebrating its 5th year at the Atlanta History Center with chair Mary Calhoun and Event Executive Chef and James Beard Award-winning Cookbook Author and Chef Virginia Willis, Back on the Farm has become one of our community’s most popular fall social events. Enjoy cocktails and light bites at the Smith Family Farm followed by a delectable supper in the Grand Overlook, all designed by a crack all-female team. Back on the Farm provides support for the Smith Family Farm and its unique educational programming that tens of thousands of school children experience each year, as well as the newly established 4-H program run in conjunction with UGA Extension at the History Center.

General tickets to Back on the Farm are $225 each. For more information, please contact Katherine Hoogerwerf at khoogerwerf@atlantahistorycenter.com.
