Chef Garden Experience
Farmer Lee Jones

This hand-selected frame gift is the Willy Wonka factory for vegetables.

Enter: The Chef’s Garden by Ohio’s Farmer Lee Jones who is most stylishly famous for his overalls and red bow tie.
Running a family-owned farm that caters to chefs, Lee has become the most renowned specialty vegetable grower in America.

So needless to say – we’re beyond smitten with this gifting collab based around Farmer Lee’s just released Chef’s Garden book.  With a foreword by Josè Andrés and written with former Food & Wine editor Kristen Donnelly, it’s amassed with over 600 pages covering hundreds of vegetables, grouped in categories, with history and advice on growing, buying, storing, and using.

Taking it to the next level, further setting this gift apart: each book is hand-signed by Farmer Lee just for you and includes his FARMACY Heirloom Vegetable Seeds for at-home-gardening. Plus a gift card to order Chefs’ Garden veggies (straight from the Ohio garden) and delivered to your door to make the recipes created by Chef Jamie Simpson, head chef of Chef’s Garden Culinary Vegetable Institute.
(in case you were wondering we’re loving the Carrot Pot Roast and Beet Marshmallows)

A holiday gift fostering a nuanced conversation with the chefs in our industry who look to the farm to grow vegetables that are as aesthetically pleasing on the plate as they are flavorful to the palate.

Eat Thoughtfully. Gift Good.
This is Not the Average Daily Dose of Greens.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
