Mission & Vision
A deep commitment to agriculture paired with an insatiable culinary curiosity is the intersection at which you will find Jamie Swofford, The Chef’s Farmer. He comes by it honest. Swofford grew up on a farm in Cleveland County, worked in kitchens for two decades, and returned to his family’s land to dig in with both hands.
In the field, he cultivates high-quality produce and boutique ingredients for chefs, breweries, and distilleries in the Piedmont, always with preservation and place in mind. In the kitchen, he explores flavors while honoring tradition, place, local ingredients, and craft.
Food is everywhere.
