(WTNH) — Connecticut has about 5,500 farms in the state of Connecticut, all producing food and milk. There are also a ton of wineries and breweries in the state.

How do you showcase all of this so that you can let people know where to find all these goods? By simply entering “Farm to Chef Week”, which began in 2016.

According to Agriculture Commissioner Bryan Hurlburt, at least 60 restaurants, campus dining halls, schools, corporate cafeterias and health care facilities connect with farms in the state and showcase meals around what is made and grown here.

Farm to Chef week is September 15th through the 21st.
