Celebrating Local Food & Local Farms


For many years, the Farm to Fork community has helped to drive the incredible growth of our local food movement throughout the state. We have missed the Farm to Fork Picnic so much the past couple of years! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing ripple effects of the pandemic on food businesses, we have decided to postpone the Farm to Fork Picnic in the Triangle again this year. 

However, we are excited to share that the Farm to Fork Picnic in Charlotte will be held on September 25, 2022! All proceeds will support agriculture and food system training programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems and farmer grants at Piedmont Culinary Guild. We hope you’ll consider celebrating with us in Charlotte this year!

We also hope you’ll join us in supporting the many restaurants, farms, and food businesses that have kept our local food scene thriving for so many years. You can view a full list of Farm to Fork participants by location here, find local farms selling pasture-raised meat on MeatSuite.com, or join the NC 10% Campaign.

Thank you and we hope you’ll join us for future Farm to Fork events!
