Troy Smiley's produce booth has been an institution at the Nashville Farmers' Market for years. One of the best places to find vegetables year round, Smiley's Farm is also known for their cured hams and pork products. The folks at Smiley's want to share their knowledge with you and have invited Bites readers to visit their farm in Ridgetop this coming Sunday.

You'll have a chance to see their hog butchering and curing facilities and learn about the process that has been practiced for six generations in Smiley Hollow. They promise "a true farm to taste experience." The class will be held this Sunday, Feb. 3, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Ridgetop is about 20 miles north of downtown Nashville, but there is no way to drive like the crow flies, so give yourself a little traveling time.

Space is limited, so RSVP to Troy as soon as possible if you're interested. The cost is $35 per person, and you can pay with cash or check at the event. To hold your spot, send an email to Jolie Yockey. If you have further questions, call Troy at (615) 829-3811.
