LOCAL.

 

We serve locally grown & raised ingredients. Simply prepared and beautifully presented.

Our menus, whether Dinner, Brunch, Snacks or Grab & Go are made from what our area farms have to offer. These menus change as often as the seasons demand. 

When you buy direct from local farmers, your dollars stay within your community, and strengthen the local economy

Local food is fresher and tastes better than food that been trucked or flown in from thousands of miles away.

 Deprivation leads to greater appreciation. When does a cozy room feel best? When you've come in from out of the freezing cold. Fresh corn in season tastes best when you haven't eaten any in 9 or 10 months-- Eating locally means eating seasonally, with all the deprivation and resulting pleasure that accompanies it. So, you may not always have tomatoes on your salad , but when you do – they will be amazing!

 

Local Foods Support Your Local Economy

Money spent with local farmers, growers, and artisans and locally-owned purveyors and restaurants all stays close to home, working to build your local economy instead of being handed over to a corporation in another city, state, or country. Since the food moves through fewer hands, more of the money you spend tends to get to the people growing it. Because these foods pass through less hands, Local Foods Promote Food Safety The fewer steps there are between your food's source and your table the less chance there is of contamination. Also, when you know where your food comes from and who grows it, you know a lot more about that food. Everything on your plate can be traced to the source.

Our Farm Partners

While most of our local farms use organic practices and at times are even biodynamic (create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the farm itself.) not all are certified as Organic, for the most part due to the cost involved. Many however  are part of the The Farmer’s Pledge .  The Farmer’s Pledge®  is a commitment to a broad set of principles that go far beyond the National Organic Program by addressing labor issues, community values and marketing.
