About Brooke Goff

Brooke Goff grew up in South Mississippi where the local food scene consisted of the catch of the day and veggie of the season. Her grandfather has deep roots in the seafood industry and from him, she learned an appreciation for natural food sources. Fishing the gulf coast, crabbing, and packing shrimp were weekly activities that she fondly remembers. Today, she is passionate about growing and supporting the South's industries - the farmers, fisherman, and artisans - who bring real, great food to our plates. Brooke lives in small town Mississippi with her husband and 2 daughters. Strategy and collaboration motivate her. Food and travel inspire her.
