“Black Deer is about experiencing the unique cultural richness that surrounds this popular way of life we call Americana. The natural ingredients that complete this simple melting pot can all be found at Black Deer – from authentic smokehouse BBQ cooking and a righteous Sunday gospel brunch to the thrill of custom motorcycle culture and a connection with nature to inspire the young folk. Black Deer is a community gathering for those who love to get it
together in the country…” – Gill Tee and Deb Shilling (Co-Founders).
