I had a great time (but it was work, too!) organizing and writing content for a special 8-page guide to finding farm-fresh food and fun in Orange County. The booklet is first appearing in the March/April issue of Chapel Hill Magazine and also is available at the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau. I hope at some point it will be distributed around town as well, though I’m not sure about that.
The guide highlights some farm-to-table restaurants, shops with dining, farms to visit, farmers markets and special food and farm events in and around Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough, NC. It’s like a mini “Farm Fresh North Carolina.” I appreciated that I could again highlight some of my favorite farms and events, and also provide updates. The other thrill was the fab design, with eye-popping color, and the great photos by Donn Young. While I loved the design of my book and the photos (by creative photographer Selina Kok, who, yes, happens to be my spouse), the images were in more-affordable black and white. Color is so sweet! I was able to do some back and forth with the visitors bureau and the designers, and we all agree that the final product is smashing. See you for yourself!
