The 13th Annual Heritage Harvest Festival, hosted by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in partnership with Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, and Seed Savers Exchange celebrates Jefferson’s legacy, and the contributions to American cuisine by enslaved workers, in a family-friendly, exciting, affordable and fun-filled atmosphere, promoting gardening, sustainability, local food, and the preservation of heritage plants.
Learn about organic gardening, seed-saving, cheese-making and southern recipes. Explore Jefferson’s 1,000 foot long vegetable garden and ornamental mountaintop landscape. Taste hundreds of heirloom tomatoes, melons and peppers and savor local artisan jams, honey and chocolates. Learn new and period cooking techniques at chef demos, pet heritage breeds of animals with the kids, or revive your own kitchen garden at the 12th annual Old- Timey Seed Swap.
The festival highlights American chefs and foodways by exploring the diverse food cultures that comprise Southern and Mid-Atlantic cuisine. Native American, European and African influences are weaved throughout the dishes prepared by today’s Southern chefs. African traditions in particular have had a profound impact on the flavors and methods of each region’s cookery.
