By Carolina Fojo, East Coast Fellow for Bon Appétit Management Company Foundation
As part of our Farm to Fork program begun in 1999, Bon Appétit Management Company purchases fresh, seasonal produce from small, local farmers around the country. We recently celebrated the milestone of 1,000 such vendors.
As a Fellow for Bon Appétit, I get to travel to these different farms and learn about the joys and challenges farmers today face. In this video, Clair Rudolf, a third-generation vegetable farmer in Bluford, IL, proudly shows me around Double Star Farms.
