"Farm to Fork" is the concept of purchasing locally grown food directly from the source. The idea is that the less time and fewer hands it takes for the food to get from the farm to the table, the fresher, more environmentally sensitive and community minded it is," said chamber CEO Faustine Curry. "This includes growing your own garden for sustainable consumption at home or for your restaurant."

"This tour will offer people a chance to meet the farmer and see what it's like to create a fully sustainable farm," Rene McCracken, director of agriculture at Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) and chair of the Chamber's Agriculture Committee, said.
