Chef and the Farmer


Eat a gourmet meal in a 100-year-old mule stable

Celebrate the culture and cuisine of eastern North Carolina at Kinston’s Chef and the Farmer. Owned by husband and wife duo Ben Knight and Vivian Howard, the Manhattan transplants operate a progressive eatery that follows a field-to-fork philosophy. Located across from the Lenoir County Farmer’s Market, Knight and Howard chose a 100-year-old mule stable as the perfect setting for their dining experience. Before you travel to visit the Chef and the Farmer’s 70-seat dining room, get a feel for the restaurant (and its chef) by watching the Peabody Award-winning PBS series A Chef’s Life, starring Howard and her Southern ingredients. With a menu that changes weekly based upon the availability of local produce, visitors can always try something new and get a true taste of North Carolina’s agricultural bounty.
