Sad news to start this Wednesday blog post. Mike Lenegar of Neola Farms passed away last night. Mike raised cattle on his farm in Tipton County, and did a lot to get the local farm-to-table movement going. Neola Farms beef has been sold at the Memphis Farmers Market, and is served at Trolley Stop Market and many other Memphis restaurants. Condolences to the Lenegar family. Dining in Memphis would not be the same without Mike’s many contributions.
