Chef Josh & Family
Josh Keepfer is our Head Chef and the Founder of Kitchen Farmacy. Born and raised in Wales, Josh has trained in Venice, London and Charleston (to name a few) honing his culinary skills at many award-winning restaurants around the globe.
Farm to table food has always been a passion for Josh. When he moved to Ontario, he found that although there was an abundance of seasonal food and local producers, it wasn't widely available to consumers in an easy to eat way. In 2018, he launched Kitchen Farmacy at the weekend Farmer’s Market in Peterborough. His stand quickly developed a following and each week the demand continued and his dishes sold out. Since the launch, Kitchen Farmacy has developed a community of trusted suppliers for our local and seasonal ingredients. Kitchen Farmacy further expanded to hosting pop-up restaurants, fundraisers and catering.
In addition to being known for using fresh, local ingredients in our dishes, Kitchen Farmacy is also well known for using wood smoke in our cooking process. From meats to vegetables, we are always firing up Alta the Smoker.
In 2020, Kitchen Farmacy launched their home delivery service with weekly rotating menus of seasonal dishes as well as a full catering menu for parties of any size.
As we continue to grow, we have added a roster of skilled Chefs and Delivery Drivers to the Farmacy Family who help bring our food to Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
Josh currently lives in Lakefield, Ontario with his wife, Chas, 2 year-old daughter, Hadley and baby boy, Finn.
