The Program

Welcome to America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital


Farm-to-fork eating has always been a way of life in the Sacramento region, long before the concept had a name. In 2012, Josh Nelson of the Selland Family Restaurants approached Visit Sacramento with the idea that the region should shine a light on its amazing food and agriculture and share it with the rest of the country. Soon after, former Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson declared the region America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, and the rest is history.

Today, the Sacramento region’s Farm-to-Fork Program serves as a year-round platform to highlight the farms, restaurants, organizations and individuals that contribute to the local culinary and agricultural landscapes. The program is housed within Visit Sacramento and works to increase awareness of the region’s unmatched prowess when it comes to fresh food.
