Fork to Farmer Partners

Fork to Farmer partners with county tourism divisions and extension offices to produce short videos about well-known farm to table chefs and the small family farmers that supply their restaurants.

So far, six video’s featuring chefs and farmers in four counties have been released, and two more are in post-production. The latest iteration takes place in Asheboro, Randolph Co., and sheds light on the need to buy local in order to bring about economic prosperity in the community. “Growing together” is the title of this story about the symbiotic relationship between local restaurant The Table and pastured beef Back to Earth Farm. The Fork to Farmer team worked with the farm owners in the crafting of two genuine farm experiences available for purchase through the People-First Tourism website.
