ASHEVILLE, NC – Hickory Nut Gap Farm will be featured on award-winning chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay's “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted” on July 4. The show will air on National Geographic Television and was filmed last fall.
On the grounds of Hickory Nut Gap Farm, Chef Ramsay met up with Matt Helms from Asheville’s Chop Shop Butchery (one of Hickory Nut Gap’s retail partners) as he showed Chef Ramsay how to make livermush — a true Appalachian staple featuring Hickory Nut Gap pasture-raised pork.
Chef Ramsay also paid a visit to the Hickory Nut Gap Heritage Breed hogs and learned about the remarkable difference in taste that comes from Hickory Nut Gap’s pasture-raised pigs.
“Working with the Nat Geo team and Gordon Ramsay was a pleasure. A big shout out to our friends at the Chop Shop for helping to set this up,” said Asher Wright, director of agriculture operations at Hickory Nut Gap, who accompanied Chef Ramsay on the farm tour. “I’ve been a Gordon Ramsay fan for a long time, and it was super special to share the farm with him and show off the good work that our production team does day-to-day.”
