Aren’t you tired of drive-thrus, chain restaurants and processed food? A more intentional dining option is a farm-to-table restaurant. The term “farm-to-table” means the restaurant sources their ingredients directly from the farmer, but this can be implemented in a variety of ways.
The purest form of a farm-to-table restaurant, is dining at the actual location where the food is produced. The process of preparing and serving the food on the same soil it’s grown from truly embodies the meaning of this movement. The more commonly known interpretation of the farm-to-table style, are restaurants serving meals sourced directly from local farmers. Even cooking products from your local farmers market is a farm-to-table experience created right in the heart of your home!
