Farmington Hemp Dinner

July 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Thursday, July 11th join the Kentucky Hemp Heritage Alliance and Farmington Historic Plantation for a delicious hemp-infused culinary experience with Louisville-based Chef Adam Burress! Brought to you by Commonwealth Extracts, 502 Hemp Wellness Center, and sponsors.

Built for John and Lucy Speed, Farmington was completed in 1816. The Historic Home was the center of a thriving 550 acre hemp plantation that was sustained by nearly 60 enslaved African Americans who lived in cabins on the property.

The 2019 Farmington Hemp Dinner honors the Glenn Sea Family, Farmington volunteers descended from David and Martha Spencer. The Spencers were enslaved at Farmington by John Speed’s son in law, Austin Peay, approximately 1843-1865. Descendants of the Spencers have shared their family photographs, oral tradition, and stories to enrich the Farmington interpretation.

Chef Adam Burress is the chef/owner of restaurants Migo, Hammerheads, and Ostra in Louisville, Kentucky. Chef Burress is known for putting exotic food on the menu and competed on the Food Network show “Chopped” in 2018. He has worked with hemp foods and will be incorporating them into a five star hemp feast.
