We are excited to announce the upcoming Wild Foods Cook-Off event sponsored by The Sandhills Rod and Gun Club, Martha Faye Crafters Club, and the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Richmond County. This year marks the twentieth annual Wild Foods Cook-Off contest and we invite anyone, including our youth, with an interest in cooking wild game to participate! The event will be held on Tuesday May 3rd, 2022 at the Sandhills Rod and Gun Club, 149 O.G. Reynolds Road Ellerbe, NC. Entries MUST be registered from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and judging will begin immediately after. Winners are determined by the People’s Choice. Everyone who attends gets to vote! Once judging begins no other dishes can be registered.

Those who don’t bring a dish can still attend and join the tasting party for a $5 admission fee. Children under 6 are free. This year’s program will focus on “Catchin’ Critters” so if you have an interesting animal trap bring it to share and display. This year there will be two categories: Meats which include deer, moose, elk, rabbit, squirrel, beaver, turkey, dove, fish, shrimp, frogs, etc. The second is any fruit, nuts, and vegetation as long as it was forged in the wild.

Contest Rules:

Anyone can participate.
Game cannot be purchased. It must be obtained legally or received as a gift.
Game may be from anywhere; NC or out-of-state.
The dish must be fully prepared abiding by food safety guidelines.
Two copies of the recipe with your name on the back are required: one for display with the dish for judging and for the cookbook.
Dishes should be able to provide 8 or more servings, so everyone can have a taste.
Please bring your utensils to serve the dish.

The prizes are sponsored by the Sandhills Rod and Gun Club. The dish with the highest number of votes from Meat and Non-meat categories will each receive a prize. All youth 16 years of age and younger who enter a dish will receive a small prize.

If you have any questions or would to register please call the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Richmond County office at (910) 997-8255.
