PICNIC, North Carolina’s newest whole hog barbecue joint, and its’ farm partner, Green Button Farm (GBF), will host their inaugural NC Barbecue Revival at the farm this fall, October 28th – 30th.
The three-day weekend begins with an intimate, seated dinner at Ryan Butler’s modern farmhouse overlooking Green Button Farm, where guests will dine with visiting pitmasters and feast on a five-course dinner created by PICNIC’s Ben Adams and Chef Justin Burdett, from Local Provisions. Guests will begin with a farm tour and hog calling contest. Sommelier, Inez Ribustello will pour champagne and sparkling wine from Bordeaux Fine and Rare, which will also be available for purchase through the wine sponsor, Wine Authorities.
Educational and entertaining experiences celebrating the time-honored pig pickin’ will be offered throughout the day on Saturday on the farm for $45 per person:

Saturday night festivities offer a progressive dinner beginning with an oyster roast by the pond with Saltbox Seafood and Locals Seafood, followed by Arrogant Swine, B’S Cracklin, Lewis Barbecue and more in the tent, and concluding with live music and s’mores in the barn for $125 per person.
The apex of the weekend commences on Sunday with BBQ Church, a symposium welcoming all North Carolina pitmasters to lend their voice to the discussion about NC wood-smoked, whole hog barbecue. This event is free for the community to join, from 11 am – noon.
