Introducing Fork to Farmer in Nash County

Supporting Local Chefs and Local Farmers

Farmers in field

The local food movement is transforming the agriculture and foodservice sector. Farm to table restaurants play a significant role in this transformation. The model of using locally sourced produce, protein, and dairy is trending in the restaurant sector throughout North Carolina and has resulted in numerous chefs receiving notable recognition and showing significant business success.
Many Nash County farmers have sought out collaborations with local restaurants and businesses in order to sell their products locally. The proximity of the Nash County Farmers Market to the Rocky Mount Mills campus has led to a unique partnership between some of our farmers and Nash County’s first craft brewery. Learn more about their story in the video above to see just one example of how we are all connected to the farms and farmers that grow our food.
