Local farmers are making it easier than ever to eat fresh in OKC.

There was a time not too long ago when it was difficult to find out where your food came from. More specifically, we all know where food comes from, but not in the sense that we have any inkling of the person who picked the potato or carrot on our plates. It is a fairly safe assumption that quite a few people do not know what garlic looks like growing in the ground. A surprising number of Americans do not know the provenance of their food.
