2019 Farm-to-Table Events


We feel it is important to support the growing regional food system by sharing the talents of Appalachian chefs with you. They source locally and create delicious, unique meals. We also use these events as an opportunity to support WV nonprofits focused on  healthy food, farm, or lifestyle initiatives. $10 of your ticket price will be donated to a specified charity in the state.
Please join us for one of these amazing evenings!


Our Celebrating the Seasons Dinner Series features a regional chef cooking at the Salt-Works each month, using local ingredients. A portion of the proceeds from these events is given to a local non-profit that supports farm, food or healthy life-style initiatives.

The 3rd Annual BB&T Salt Fest will be Saturday, September 28th! This event is free to the public and will host Craftsmen and Food Vendors from all over Appalachia to celebrate the history of the Kanawha Valley. Specifically the history stemming from the Salt Industry that once thrived in the valley, and now, thanks to Nancy Bruns and Lewis Payne, continues to prosper in a new light.
Charles Wesley Godwin will be the headliner playing in the late afternoon.
