From the Farmer’s Mouth is a compilation from the From Local Farms project of Kevin TV, an online series to allow consumers to meet the people and see the places where our local food comes from. It gives the viewer an opportunity to hear our farmers talk about organics, eating local, the Slow Food, movement and food education. From the Farmer’s Mouth was shot entirely with a flip camera and produced and edited by Kevin Kossowan. This video also won the Perennial Plate competition in the U.S.
