Welcome to Farm Week

travelanimal-24

Today here in Phoenix we are attending the fourth ArizonaFarmer+Chef Connection.  An event that focuses on developing successful farm to chef relationships by connecting food producers and buyers so they may talk directly to each other about product needs, availability and procurement of farm fresh honest food.  The day will be filled with education, facilitate collaboration, cultivate partnerships and promote growth for our local food system.

As chefs, we our schooled in knowing the importance of where our food comes from, but do we always take the time to get to know the people behind the food?

So this week we are taking you behind the scenes, we will be sharing information on this event, along with some photos of great small local farms in our own backyard and some farms we have had the pleasure of visiting across the country.

The largest fig tree we have ever seen.  The fruit was almost ready to harvest.  This is where the chickens were hanging out.  It was about 100 degrees that day.  These chickens had the right idea.

These goats were not shy.  One of them tried to eat our lens hood.
