Turner Family Farms not only sells fresh produce to local restaurants, we work closely with local chefs to provide our CSA customers with culinary expertise, recipes, and even occasional gifts and coupons from your favorite local restaurants.

 

Feast for the Gods – Chef Alexis Fouros

Betsy and Alexis at the Poplar Grove Farmers Market

Alexis and Betsy Fouros are the chef owners of Feast for the Gods (The Creative Market Place, Inc.)  While Alexis is the big- name chef of the two, Betsy creates fantastic dishes too, usually with a Southern flair.  Full disclosure, the Fouros’s are very close friends of ours, but they are also just truly fascinating people, both individually and as a couple.  You can find them and their magnificent Greek/Mediterranean offerings, rain or shine, at several local-area farmer’s markets, including the Farmer’s Market at Poplar Grove and the Farm Market at River Bluffs. They also cater, offer cooking classes and have a beautiful cookbook.  Their full story is too good to pass up here on our blog page.

Chef Erin Wiley

We worked closely with Chef Erin when she was at Porches Cafe inside the River Bluffs community.  It wasn’t unusual for us to run produce to her directly out of the field of our River Bluffs farm location.  Erin has moved on and is currently the Executive Chef of a restaurant group that owns Dram and Morsel, and Husk among others.  We still supply some specialty produce to her and look forward to establishing a relationship with the other restaurants under her direction.  Though she’s moved on to bigger and better things, she’ll always be our sweetheart.
