A couple of months ago, I had to pleasure to meet Mr. Anthony Ladesich while he was having lunch at The Farmhouse, he then told me that he wanted to work with us in a short little video which would showcase the work that we do with our local farmers. While KC has a lot of wonderful things to be known for, not that many people outside of Kansas City seem to know the wonderful farm-to-table movement taking place in this great city of ours. He mentioned it would be in collaboration with our friends at Visit KC, and Gibbs Road Community Farms. That was all I needed to hear. I looked for Chef Foust and told him he needed to meet Mr. Ladesich and hear his ideas. We could not wait to be part of such a wonderful short film!!
It feels weird for us to talk about ourselves, however, if you ask us something about our farmers… please grab a seat because we have SO MUCH to tell!! What is there not to love about our local farmers?? They are right here in KC, on our back yard, working day in and day out in order to grow the best animals and produce ever. To be able to talk to them and ask them “Hey! How are you doing? How is this weather treating you?” And to hear that the big storm really hit hard this farmer north of KC, but it skipped this other one that is located south of KC… that for one farmer with these crops is loving the rain, but this other one is making it hard on his “not so thirsty crops”, is a real eye opener to all their hard work and dedication. It brightens my day when I see any of our farmers walking through our door, and I look forward to those few free minutes of catching up and seeing how everything is working out for them.
We would like to thank Visit KC, Mr. Anthony Ladesich and of course, Gibbs Road Community Farms for allowing us to be part of this wonderful little film, and for letting us shed a bit more light to how great it is to support our local farmers. Don’t forget to check out our full list of farmers that we work with!!
