Marvelous Mushrooms The Focus at Annual Wellness Dinner

annual wellness dinner, Haw River Gourmet Mushrooms, 2 baby goats

Our Third Annual Wellness Dinner, Sunday January 20 (from 1:30 pm to 5 pm) focuses on the health benefit of mushrooms with our Special Guests, Ches & Laura Stewart from Haw River Mushrooms, LLC. They may even bring their adorable toddler twins!

The Stewarts grow edible and medicinal mushrooms at their small farm in Saxapahaw, North Carolina. They grow mushrooms both indoors (oyster mushrooms, lions mane, shiitake, cinnamon cap, reishi, king trumpet, etc.) and outdoors (King Stropharia, blewits, log grown lions mane, blue oyster, and shiitake). Laura holds a Wild Mushroom Food Safety Certification which allows her to sell nineteen varieties of seasonal mushrooms.

Their passion for mushrooms increased as they learned more about the culinary diversity of mushrooms (with some tasting like chicken, crab, lobster, and more) as well as the amazing health benefits of mushrooms (including supporting the immune system, boosting mental clarity, and being a healthy source of vitamins and nutritional protein). They will be giving an informative talk about mushrooms and our menu features their mushrooms!

Third Annual Wellness Dinner Menu:

  • Chef’s Choice Appetizers
  • Warm Chaga & Reishi Mushroom Tea
  • Hungarian Mushroom Soup
  • East Branch Ginger, Microgreen, & Citrus Salad
  • Mushroom Pastry
  • Peasant Duck Confit on Quinoa and Brown Rice Pilaf with Sauteed Mustard Greens & Mushrooms
  • Cheese and Fruit Platter
  • Gluten Free and Vegetarian Options Are Available (Upon Request)

Call 919-742-5176 for more information or email ( The Inn at Celebrity Dairy and Celebrity Dairy Farm are located at 144 Celebrity Dairy Way in Siler City, North Carolina. To purchase tickets online, click here.

Our Sunday Dinners are always on the third Sunday of the month in our spacious great room (with indoor air conditioning in the summer and a warm fire in the winter). We look forward to seeing our guests! Guests can also tour the barn (and meet our friendly goats) and we can show you around our cheese room. Bring your appetites to our Annual Wellness Dinner!

In 1863, during Abraham Lincoln’s presidency, Thanksgiving became a federal holiday.

The Inn at Celebrity Dairy and Celebrity Dairy Farm is thankful for the people and animals who make our work possible. The people who are B&B guests at our inn, who attend our events including Open Barns and Third Sunday Dinners, those attending Farmers Markets, and for local restaurants who buy our products. Without our adorable Celebrity Dairy Goats, we could not produce our healthy goat’s milk, our award-winning goat cheese, and our goat soaps.

If you want to celebrate Thanksgiving you are invited to our Celebrity Dairy Farm! After the meal (and before Gwen’s Apple Pie and our Ginger Gelato Dessert), we allow guests to visit with our friendly Celebrity Goats. You are welcome to take pictures and, if you would like to, we even let you hold our adorable baby goats!

The Thanksgiving holiday is intended for remembering what we are thankful for and for spending time with loved ones enjoying our many blessings like delicious food.

How To Become A Celebrity Dairy Volunteer

become a celebrity dairy volunteer, Celebrity Dairy Farm, goatsWould you like to become a Celebrity Dairy volunteer? There are many ways you can volunteer to help us. We are a farm that stays busy doing work that we love.  It would be made even more special if we could share it with friends.

Possible volunteer tasks include:

  • Feeding and cuddling kids (baby goats) during kidding season (January to April)
  • Sharing information about our goats with Celebrity Dairy guests and visitors
  • Showing off our goats at Open Barn Events
  • Cleaning our barn and pasture
  • Repairing our fence
  • Providing other support at our special events
  • Gardening (especially for those who have been called “green thumbs”)

Of course, any amount of time you spend with us we greatly appreciate, however, we especially need volunteers who can  commit to at least two four-hour shifts per month. This gives you a chance to really learn how our farm works and for us to use our volunteer resources wisely. We ask that you first attend a brief tour and introduction session before making a commitment to do volunteer work with us.

Volunteers who can work with us regularly will be first in line to assist during kidding season and who would not want to cuddle and bottle feed adorable baby goats?! You will get to try our cheese, gelato, fudge, and soap and observe the process of making our goat milk products. Plus, we offer discounts on stays at the Inn at Celebrity Dairy and Special Events to our volunteers.

If you cannot make a long-term commitment, we can make arrangements for groups of five or more to take on larger projects. This is an opportunity to get your hands dirty on the farm and bond with your friends and co-workers!

Get a taste of volunteering with us at our First Sunday Open Workdays from 1 to 5 pm followed by a potluck supper and desserts from the Dairy. Anyone interested in volunteering may email us ( or call us (919-742-5176).

Please let us know the times and how often you are available to volunteer as well as if you have any physical restrictions. We appreciate your willingness to learn how you can help out The Inn at Celebrity Dairy and the Celebrity Dairy Farm.
