Farmer L Jones

Farmer Lee Jones is a farmer at The Chef's Garden in Ohio, the farm their family has owned for decades. They are committed to reviving heirloom vegetables and discovering exciting new varieties, all while telling their stories and farming sustainably so their vegetables are dense with flavor and nutrition. In 2011, Jones was honored with the James Beard Foundation's award for Who's Who in Food & Beverage, and he has spoken across the country as an expert in regenerative agriculture. Whether he's roaming the farm or at a black-tie event, Jones is always seen in his iconic outfit: a white shirt with denim overalls and a red bow tie.
