Vivian Howard's Chef & the Farmer is committed 100% to the philosophy its name spells out. They work with many small farms in eastern North Carolina to supply the restaurant with proteins, produce, dairy, nuts and grains. While Eastern Carolina is agriculture rich, historically much of its land was dedicated to tobacco production. However, many farmers are exploring other possibilities for their land. Several of them now work with Chef & the Farmer and welcome visitors.
