Farm-to-Table

Farm-to-table is a phrase that can mean different things to different people. At its heart, however, farm-to-table means that the food on the table came directly from a specific farm. Sometimes this means the table is actually at the farm and cooks or chefs prepare and serve the food at the farm (even in the field). Other times the use of farm-to-table emphasizes a direct relationship between a farm and a restaurant or store. It can also refer more loosely to farmers markets, CSAs, and other venues where people can buy food directly from growers. Anyone using the phrase farm-to-table should be able to name the specific farm(s) from which they are sourcing.

The restaurants featured here work directly with local farms and purveyors to bring fresh ingredients to prepare in their kitchens, and then to showcase on their menus for their guests to enjoy.
