Your experience will begin with a tour of our heritage garden display which depicts the history of agriculture in the Bahamas beginning with the original inhabitants, the Arawak Indians, to present day. We will address geological and social factors, and local and international policies that contributed to the decline of agricultural production resulting in the nation currently importing over 90% of its food. Guests will then enjoy a tour of the farm and will experience first-hand the superior tastes of locally grown produce as they hand-pick our products direct from the fields. We will conclude the experience with a question-and-answer period over our very own refreshing , craft-brewed beverages.
Tim and Selima Hauber share a passion for advancing Bahamian agriculture using sustainable growing practices. Inspired to move the country towards food security, Selima attained a PhD in Horticulture in 2005. Tim has worked as a grower at the nation's the largest hydroponic vegetable farm for more than a decade. Together, the couple has grown a small organic vegetable garden to a 2-acre farm that serves numerous resorts and restaurants and thousands of farmer's market patrons with high quality, fresh vegetables. Tim's training as a food scientist has enabled the couple to diversify their farm offerings to include a line of craft-brewed beverages including kombucha and natural sodas. The couple believes that healthful food can be delicious and strive to inspire consumers to eat well for pleasure and good health.
Field to Fork is a 2-acre farm 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown and only a few minutes from the airport.
