A (Super Local) Farm-Inspired Feast
At Wendell Falls, we have an ongoing love affair with everything local. Local music. Local artists. Local homebuilders. Our on-site Grounds Café even brims with java, beer and sweet treats from Raleigh’s local brewers and bakers. (Yum!)
To celebrate our local farmers, the Wendell Falls team embarked on a recipe scavenger hunt. We curated our favorite recipes featuring ingredients from the local farms on the farm tour in the eastern Triangle. Cinch your apron, don your chef’s hat, and try your hand at these easy dishes – using tasty tidbits from our local farmers!

Breakfast any time of day! This sweet potato pancake oozes a sweet coconut filling topped with caramel glazed pecans. You’d never guess that it’s also paleo, gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free!
