A Taste of California

Sacramento’s Farm-To-Fork did not start off as a fad or a trend, but it has been a way of life in the Sacramento region, before the concept had a name. In the past, the only obstacle in the way of achieving today’s goal was the initiation. However, it wasn’t until 2012, when John Nelson of the Selland Family Restaurant approached the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau with the idea and the passion to shine light on the amazing food, agriculture, and lifestyle of California.

The movement – Feeding the World

If you’re eating sushi anywhere in the nation, chances are, you’re getting a taste of Sacramento’s massive rice crop. In fact, Japan consumes more Sacramento area-grown sushi rice than its own domestic rice.

 

“The Sacramento region is leading the globe in domestic caviar production, with 80 percent of domestic caviar being farmed in Sacramento County and supplied to some of the world’s finest restaurants and providers, including Petrossianand Per Se,” according to Los Angeles Times.

Why Farm-To-Fork in Sacramento?

Today, Sacramento sits among 1.5 million acres of farms and ranches that grow more than 120 crops for markets here and abroad. The region is also home to more than 40 regional farmers markets—including the largest California Certified Farmers’ Market in the state.

Local restaurants utilize the abundance of regionally grown products to create a Farm-to-Fork freshness that’s unparalleled. Whether you’re enjoying a burger or an elegant dinner, local ingredients are on the table. And as the seasons change, so do the Sacramento region’s restaurant menus, ensuring a true taste of local flavor.

In short – the Sacramento region is the true home of Farm-to-Fork. So grab a plate – we saved you a seat.
