Last night, The Oxford and Raleigh City Farm teamed up for a special meal. The Farm to Table fundraiser dinner featured five unique and delicious dishes, all including produce from Raleigh's own urban farm.
In case you missed our special "tweet seat" commentary, we compiled a tweet log to document the night.
@RaleighCityFarm has fall harvest coming up, and volunteers are always welcome! Thanks for providing all the fresh produce tonight!

Peppers in the chow chow and all 7 varieties of lettuce right from @RaleighCityFarm. Looks great! @OxfordGastropub pic.twitter.com/eI2ByN0e
That was probably the freshest and most delicious salad I've ever eaten. Thanks @OxfordGastropub and @RaleighCityFarm

Up next: Lightly Hickory Smoked Beef Tenderloin with herb roasted @RaleighCityFarm turnips, lobster mushrooms and sherry-bacon creamed corn
