Celebrating Local Food & Local Farms

Welcome

This year's lineup begins with the perennial favorite Farm to Fork Picnic, where the area's best farmers and chefs are paired together to create delectable bite-size dishes that inspire and amaze. The event is a celebration of our local food community and the people who work so hard to bring delicious local foods to our plates year-round.

Not only are the Farm to Fork Events delicious, they also benefit a great cause. All proceeds support beginning farmer programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS). Please join us at one or both events - we look forward to seeing you there!

Farm to Fork Picnic

Fearrington Village in Pittsboro | June 7th 4 - 7 pm

The annual Farm to Fork picnic is a celebration of our local food community, where the area's best farmers and chefs are paired together to create delectable bite-size dishes that inspire and amaze. The event is a celebration of our local food community and the people who work so hard to bring delicious local foods to our plates year-round. Last year, more than 1,400 people, 32 farmers, 32 chefs, and 28 local businesses came together to celebrate our area’s vibrant local food system. The event also features over a dozen local food artisans and more than a dozen beverage producers, with live music, fun activities for children, and surprises for the whole family. Bon Appétit Magazine called it "the country's best all-you-can-eat feast"! Farm to Fork diverts 98% of the event's waste through source reduction, composting and recycling, typically generating only one trash bag for landfill.
