Tours

On a Food Roots tour we explore various Texas regions and urban areas such as Dallas / Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, North Texas and the Hill Country, and visit growers, producers and culinary experts at their farm, ranch, vineyard, workshop, kitchen, showroom or manufacturing site. We talk to the experts, listen to their stories and learn from their shared experience. We sample their products to better understand how we can integrate the diversity and abundance of Texas food and wine into our daily lives. Our goal is to give each guest an intimate food and wine experience that encourages each person to change the way they interact with their food sources. You can find a list of sample tours on our Tours page.

Virtual Tours

You can have a Food Roots experience without traveling. Our virtual tour program brings the experts to you. We can provide leaders from a variety of culinary, agricultural or food production disciplines. Our experts bring their own unique perspectives, experience, knowledge and stories to give your guests a broad understanding of the reasons for pursuing their discipline in Texas as well as the methods they use and the challenges they face. Our multi–media presentation will take your guests on a virtual tour of the farm, ranch or production facility while giving them face-to-face interaction with the owner, grower or producer.
