“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” ― Masanobu Fukuoka
We seem to be hearing a lot about farm-to-table dining, not only because of the health benefits of farm fresh food, but also because food that comes directly from the grower is always tastier! A lot of the farm-to-table coverage is limited to restaurants, but did you know that a number of InnVirginia bed & breakfasts offer locally sourced food as well?
Meadowbrook Farm Bed & Breakfast: Not only does this Suffolk, VA inn provide fresh-from-the-farm locally grown products, but a lot of their ingredients are grown right on the B&B premises—eggs from the Meadowbrook chickens, garden vegetables, apples, peaches, plums, berries and more.
Foxfield Inn: At this Charlottesville, VA bed & breakfast, you can be sure that you’ll enjoy top quality cuisine during your stay! With eggs and pork from a local organic farm and herbs picks right from Foxfield’s garden, their emphasis on FLOSS (fresh, local, organic, seasonal, and sustainable) is evident and delicious.
The Inn at Vineyards Crossing: Jillian, innkeeper at this Hume, VA B&B, says, “We were delighted to partner with Valley View Farms to supply us with local farm to table produce. This year, we were able to plant a garden there specifically for the Inn and food is delivered the night before it is prepared. All of our eggs also come from this farm and are delivered right to our door. By providing farm to table meals it takes the dining experience to a whole other level. Guests are excited to learn about the local community and to support it, and farm to table meals are an incredible way to fulfill this while also creating incredible dishes.”
