Farm To Fork Celebrates Local, Organic Foods

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A farm in West Nashville is celebrating all things organic and local. Thursday night was the second annual Farm To Fork dinner.

Food was pulled from the fields only a few hundred yards away and ended up on dinner plates for the night.

It seems like a simple concept, but one that takes a lot of hands to make it happen.

"I think there's a little bit of disillusion that it takes one or two people sitting on a tractor all day long to create the farm part of it," said farm owner Sylvia Ganier.

The Farm to Fork dinner benefits the Cumberland River Compact. It works to fight erosion along the Cumberland which is taking away farm and recreation land every year.
