At the age of 15, Keith Sarasin started working at a local sub shop washing dishes and making subs. By 2012 he held titles from Sous Chef to Executive Chef, and eventually private chef before founding The Farmers Dinner.

The Farmers Dinner concept came about from Keith’s time working with local farms in the New England area. He wanted a way to support local farms while sharing the stories he learned from his time with various farmers.

Since 2012, The Farmers Dinner has hosted over 81 farms to table events across New England and fed more than 20,000 customers raising over $140,000 for local farms.

In addition to his time in the kitchen, Keith is the author of two books, The Perfect Turkey and co-author of the 2019 release, The Farmers Dinner – A Story in Every Bite. He's also got a Third book in the works.
