US (AZ): Chef partners with local grower

Joseph Dominguez works closely with some local chefs to create the freshest farm to table dishes. From cucumbers to his famous cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes to eggplants, peppers and colored carrots, he helps grow organic produce for people to enjoy in Yuma.

“Hillside Farms, I started after college when I came back to Yuma," Dominguez told 13 On Your Side. "I wanted to get into farming so we have a little bit of farm here and we started with one greenhouse full of heirloom tomatoes and sold them to the farmers market, every year we would build another greenhouse and eventually met up with the Casino and now we offer all of our stuff to them," he said.

Executive chef at Quechan Resort and Casinos, Garrett McKeeman shares what the experience has been like.
