Our Story......

City Farm Company was established in 2016 as a pop-up restaurant nestled inside of the Nashville Farmer's Market and now we're ready to move into our first location! As a scratch kitchen, we create and design our dishes to keep their integrity in flavor and source. By sourcing from local farms and artisans, we can commit to preparing only the freshest produce and meats for our customers.  After a few successful pop-up visits to the Nashville Farmer's Market, we signed on to become temporary residents in their Grow Local Kitchen Program. The Grow Local Kitchen is an incubator kitchen for newly established pop up restaurants. Take a look: http://nashvillefarmersmarket.org/about/grow_local_kitchen

Co-Owner and Chef Lakendra Christi, a Knoxville native and culinary arts graduate, pays homage to southern staples by taking ingredients and dishes you're familiar with and elevating them.  Shavone Holt, co-owner, and  Jackson, Tn native, took her 15 years of sales and marketing experience and the pair decided to open City Farm Company.  Our mission is dedicated to providing a complete dining experience to customers. We believe our customers deserve the best ingredients and by nurturing relationships with local farmers and artisans we can assure our mission.

The Kitchen.....

Our pop up kitchen maybe small but the food is made with love ♥  We're committed to serving our customers the freshest produce and meats from local farmers and artisans. The Grow Local Kitchen at Nashville Farmers' Market is roughly 560 sq ft. In this space, we serve lunch and utilize it for our catering production. We create and design seasonal scratch dishes to keep their integrity in flavor and source. Our kitchen focuses only on ingredients that are in season. By getting creative, using what is available and cooking to order we can assure that our food is always fresh.  As we grow into our new location so will our menu and food options.  We will be adding some fresh grab-n-go items and selling our infamous Herban Mint Lemon Tea by the 1/2 gallon!

The Bakery.....

Oh yeah, we're a hand-made scratch bakery too! We bake all of our own breads in house using local ingredients. In our new location we will expand our small batch bakery so our customers can purchase our breads, cornbread kits and sweets.

The Project FAQs

Going from a pop up to your very own location does come with challenges. Continuing to operate as a pop-up restaurant while completing our kitchen expansion and move into our new location is a challenge in it's self. We chose to continue our pop-up operation during our project because it's important that our existing customers who have been so supported can still eat with us and easily transition to our new location.

Another challenge we face is our Summer 2017 opening date. Because we will be hiring new crew members, we want to make sure all are trained and acclimated in their new rolls prior to opening. If they need a little more time then we want to be able to give them that. We're dedicated to giving you best experience you when you visit City Farm Company. Also, as you see our kitchen expansion is much needed. Of course with any type of renovation there could be a few unforeseen delays once construction begins. We will communicate those delays if any and keep our backers updated. We have the skill set and team to mitigate all of our challenges.

Lastly, we have structured this project to insure our backers have no risk! With every pledge given we commit to allocating a portion to fulfill all pledge rewards. This means if our project is not fully funded our backers will still be rewarded for their contribution.  We hope we've earned your support!
