The food truck history

Farmer & Chef is unique in that it was created by organic farmers who are passionate about good food.  The food truck is based out of Two Bear Farm in Whitefish, which puts it within walking distance to the highest quality, freshest ingredients you can imagine.  The goal of the food truck is simple yet ambitious.  Cook delicious and beautiful food of all styles, from scratch, using only the freshest organic and sustainable ingredients possible, all produced locally within the state of Montana, while avoiding the use GMO ingredients.  We call it Farm Fusion.  It’s good food.  It supports Montana producers who use good practices.  And it supports our community. Farmer & Chef offers catering services for the Flathead Valley & beyond.

The farm

Two Bear Farm is a 60-acre Certified Organic vegetable farm in Whitefish, Montana that is owned and operated by Todd and Rebecca Ulizio.  Now in their 10th season, Todd and Rebecca have dedicated themselves to growing the highest quality, nutrient dense produce for the health of their local community while striving to be good land stewards. And Farmer & Chef is an extension of this passion and belief.

the chef

Chef Josh Bard, his wife and cooking assistant Mandy, and son Avery all moved from Stowe, Vermont to Whitefish, Montana to take the helm of Farmer & Chef.  A talented chef with a passion for local foods, Josh was tired of food industry paradigm where low quality ingredients are used solely in the name of profit margin.  Josh wanted a change of pace where he could get back to his roots and passion for food by using the best, freshest, novel ingredients he could find. When you eat food from Farmer & Chef, you will be able to tell the difference!

Creative

Farmer & Chef is based on the concept of high quality local foods that are season in nature.  Which means every week of the year provides a different diversity of crops with which to craft a unique meal for your event.  Chef Josh can handle any genre of food you can throw at him.  He will work with you to craft a creative menu plan that will truly make your event one-of-a-kind. Farmer & Chef can cater your next event in Whitefish, Bigfork, Kalispell and beyond!

Fresh

Really fresh.  Most of the produce used by Farmer & Chef comes right from Two Bear Farm where they are based.  Produce is picked to order within a day or two of your event, leaving only enough time for the Chef to prepare and craft your meal.  No industrial food system here.  Not only will the visual beauty of the food add to your event, but you will truly be able to taste the difference.
