About The Dirty Fork


The Dirty Fork is apart of the Align Farms group. Align started in 2012 with a vision to create a multi-generational, pasture to plate, food production business. They had a clear goal in mind; finding a better balance for their teams, their farms, and their environment.

In 2020 they begun the conversation about the health of their teams and what their future looked like. It was then they made a goal to supply 60% of their team's diets from their land. Already supplying them meat and milk they then researched for an on farm vege garden and portable chicken trailer for eggs. In August 2021 The Dirty Fork was born and .3ha was converted to a market garden, this is located on Align Clareview in Westerfield, Mid Canterbury. Clareview has also embarked on a multi-year study of regenerative farming and we apply these practices to the garden.
