Consumer demand supports authentic, family farming, producing ‘nutrient-dense’, real food, feeding consumer demand. Learn more
Support our local food economy by getting to know your farmers and artisans.

Winner 2014 Ontario Culinary Tourism Event of the Year
The winner of the Ontario Culinary Tourism Event of the Year award is The CK Table. Each year in the early Autumn in Chatham-Kent, local farmers come together with chefs and food lovers to put on The CK Table. Held on a different farm each year, the event showcases the rich produce of the area and the pride of place held by its chefs, artisans and farmers.

They’re sent home with a greater understanding of where their food comes from and what it means to be part of the growing food culture in Ontario. Learn More
