DFC FARMS TRADING CO & CAFÉ
Big Ring was hired to create the branding, social media presence, food photography, and apparel design for the DFC Farms Trading CO. & Café, which opened in February of 2014. DFC was the first fully Farm to Fork Restaurant in Historic Downtown Monroe, NC. With a full staff of culinary masterminds, unique dishes, fresh produce from local farmers, and local goods provided by local craftspeople, DFC was as local as possible.
In September 2015, even though DCF was in Monroe, Creative Loafing recognized DFC as the "Best Lunch" and "Best Farm To Table Restaurant" in the entire Charlotte area. Unfortunately, later in the Fall of 2015, the building where the restaurant was located went up for sale and the restaurant closed. DFC Farms still exists as a cattle company and is owned by the former restaurant's operators.
