LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A catering business has expanded to brick and mortar store to create a locally-owned restaurant in a neighborhood which the founder said needs growth.

Farm to Fork Catering & Cafe is now operating in Louisville's Portland neighborhood in an old fire station at 2425 Portland Avenue. Owner Sherry Hurley-Magnuson viewed nearly fifty locations before agreeing that building was perfect for her vision.

The Farm to Fork menu is full of local pasture-raised meats and poultry, sustainably-grown fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, farm fresh eggs and more.

“I love feeding people and making people happy with food,” Hurley-Magnuson said. “We do a lot of catering and I love being able to interact with people.”

Mayor Greg Fischer and Greater Louisville Inc. helped celebrate the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
