VT Farm to Table Dining
Farm-to-table is more than the latest trend in dining. The farm-to-table restaurant movement is growing and here in Vermont and local farms, chefs and cafes are participating. The real winners in the Farm-to-table movement are you and I and anyone who appreciates good food. Farm-To-Table means local food, fresher food and tastier meals.
The Farm-To-Table movement involves the use of locally grown foods, minimally processed and grown without pesticides. Farm-to-table chefs and restaurant owners seek out local sources for everything from eggs to fruits, vegetables to locally raised poultry, pork, beef and chicken.
Many, if not all, Farm-to-table restaurants rely on traditional farm style cooking with an emphasis on freshness, seasonality and simple preparations. Some even incorporate forager fresh mushrooms, fiddleheads and other natural delicacies into their dishes.
The Farm-to-Table dining experience has actually been around for centuries. It is experiencing a renaissance here in the states as Americans become better informed about the foods they eat.
The movement will continue to grow as more restaurants create gardens and connect with local farms, foragers, and suppliers to present the very freshest ingredients for its discriminating customers.
