In this episode of Digging In, we bring a chef to a farm to explore how the relationship between chef and farmer can work. We want to answer the following questions: What does local farming entail? Is it financially possible for restaurants to execute seasonal menus using produce from within our state borders? Does this matter to diners? In this first episode we begin to seek out the answers to these questions.

*Editors note: chef David Gaspar de Alba is the former chef of Radish & Rye. Since the making of this video, he has gone on to be a farmer at Silver Leaf Farms and caters for private events.
