OUR MISSION

Connecting you with the global and local food system and its importance to you and your family — from dirt to dinner.

About Us

Dirt to Dinner is a self-funded, non-revenue-generating digital publication that maintains a commitment to objectivity and fairness, sound science, and rational thinking. Our research includes information gathered from universities, farmers and ranchers, research professionals, food companies, field experts, and scientific studies. We write the facts regardless of popular opinion and cite our sources accordingly.

Dirt to Dinner provides factual information about our food system through rigorous research, interviews with food suppliers, and insights from industry experts. We understand there is no singular way to feed the world. Our modern food system is a complex mix of critical people, skills, technologies, and techniques.

There is not always a simple answer – but there is always a solution – and we work to deliver that to you on our site and with our weekly e-newsletter.

Our purpose is to:

    • Bridge the knowledge gap between consumers and producers
    • Investigate the future of food and its impact on our global food system
    • Explain how we grow food sustainably
    • Explore the latest science in nutrition, health, and our diet
