I often tell people that Ben and I had our first baby in June 2006. Naive but determined, we opened Chef & the Farmer with the hope that our restaurant might light a spark in our little town and help transition some of Eastern Carolina’s displaced tobacco farmers into food farmers. Since then, our restaurant has come to be known for thoughtful, creative cooking rooted in this region’s ingredients and traditions. I’m proud of what our first child has accomplished and excited for her future.
