WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

We’re most often out in a field with our noses in the dirt. But you’ll also find us in lab coats and restaurants and packinghouses, Congressional and State offices, college and industry research facilities – anywhere there’s a story to be told about food and farming.

Where The Food Comes From taps into the passion and commitment of the people who feed us. There are easier ways to make a living, as anyone who’s ever seen the show knows. But from the farms to the research laboratories to the offices where people make the rules that regulate it all, the people involved in agriculture care deeply about what they’re doing. They make up just 1.5% of the population – but they proudly bear the weight of keeping the rest of us fed.

That’s the power of Where The Food Comes From – peeling back the labels and letting the world meet some of the people who put food on their plates.

FEATURED EPISODE

Season 3, Episode 01

Where The (Water) Buffalo Roam

For our Season 3 opener, we thought it might be fun to go off the beaten path and look at something not fruit and veggie related. We were right...

Water buffalo are native to Asia — so what are they doing on a farm in Salisbury, North Carolina? They're there to provide milk for traditional Italian buffala mozzarella cheese and super creamy gelato for Fading D Farms. Fading D Farms is up in the hills of Salisbury, NC, where typically no kind of buffalo roams, and the farm produces milk, meat, traditional Italian buffala mozzarella cheese and — most amazingly — gelato.
