On top of the dinner partnership, Bombay Bramble pledged a $25,000 donation to the Black Farmer Fund, an organization that invests in black agricultural systems in the Northeast. Jaime Keller, Brand Director of BOMBAY GINS North America thought Chef Tate was the perfect partner for an initiative that supports Black farmers.“We are honored to partner with Omar Tate to launch our new dinner series, which pays tribute to Black farmers across the United States who have made an integral contribution to American cuisine and culture,” Keller said.

Chef Omar Tate has worked in some of the hottest restaurants in New York and Philadelphia for the past ten years. He’s also made a name for himself through his innovative Honeysuckle projects, known for seamlessly fusing music, art, food and community. He hopes his latest project creates more awareness about Black farmers and the issues they face. “There are several factors that inhibit the growth of Black farmers throughout the country. The lack of resources is a big one, another is distribution and supply chain issues. And one that I see personally is that the public is just not aware of their existence. Our partnership with Bombay Bramble is a first step by bringing awareness to an issue that may not have otherwise been drawn to,” Tate told The Root exclusively.
