TENNERTON — Come to the Upshur County Public Library’s 29th Annual Ramp Dinner, an Appalachian Extravaganza, from 5-8 p.m. on April 12, 2024, brought to you by the Upshur County Public Library in partnership with Fish Hawk Acres. 

Chef Dale Hawkins of Fish Hawk Acres will be preparing the meal.  The evening’s atmosphere will be enhanced by Key to Adam, a regionally known guitar and violin duet, as they provide entertainment during the dinner. 

The dinner is held in the library, located at 1150 Rt. 20 South Rd., Buckhannon, WV 26201.  We will also be adding a serving line this year to reduce wait time, and still have take-out available if needed. 

This is a unique opportunity to sample gourmet ramp dishes.  If you would like the non-ramp version of the meal, please specify when reserving your ticket.  

The menu includes:

  • Deviled Eggs with Pickled Ramps
  • Fish Hawk Acres Signature Baked Ham (no ramps)
  • Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas (with and without ramps)
  • Roasted Spring Potatoes (with & without ramps)
  • Spinach Salad with Bacon Ramp Vinaigrette (non-ramp option available)
  • Potato & Ramp Chowder
  • Ramp & Vegetable Strata (Italian Quiche w/ Spinach, Mushrooms, Peppers, Tomatoes & Ramps)
  • Ramp Focaccia
  • Strawberry Shortcake

Ticket payment via cash or check is accepted in person at the Circulation Desk, via credit or debit card at the above website, or by calling the Library at (304)473-4219, ext. 2 or 3, during regular library hours.
