Private Events

RayRay’s hosts events at their farm space, known as Anderson Farms, in Granville. Weddings are a very popular event hosted here. Patrons who decide to use RayRay’s for their private events = have the option to include catered RayRay’s food packages.

For weddings specifically there is a Love and Smoke package. This package allows the customer to choose three meats and four Southern sides. It includes buns and the RayRay’s sauces at no additional cost. Staff will be-on site at Anderson’s to set up the buffet for the Love and Smoke package, prepare the food, and clean before leaving. This package is also a catering option if Anderson’s is not the ideal location for the wedding or other private event.


Anderson Farms is also the home to the monthly Swiner Socials, where diners can get together and enjoy multi-course meals made by local chefs.

There is also the opportunity to host a hog roast. Patrons can choose a hog of choice from the fields, as Anderson Farms raises their own hogs. The hog is roasted outside and is accompanied with several Southern sides and beverages for guests to enjoy.
