A few times a year, we here at Goldburgers love for the Farm To Table dinners at Eddy Farm in Newington. These dinners consist of a multiple course, prix fixe menu using fresh local ingredients. A listing of our upcoming Farm to Table Dinners can be seen on our website’s event page. http://www.goldburgers.com/events/
Farm To Table, though seemingly more popular in recent years, is not a new concept! As far back as the mid 1800’s, people living in the cities longed for food that was grown locally. They longed for vacationing at country resorts that grew their own food. Let’s be real, food back in the 1800’s was not always “fresh” by the time it arrived at home.
Today, if you’re interested in food, you’ve most likely heard the term Farm To Table. Farm to Table has come about in the last 50 or so years where there has been some disconnect about where our food actually comes from and where it’s grown. Farm to Table is about distance – the shortest distance between the farm and the consumer! Farm To Table dinners provide fresh meat, produce and dairy to the consumer. These dinners are always fresh, have better flavor than a dinner made from ingredients shipped from afar and better nutritional value!
Attending a Farm To Table dinner is a great way to get out, support your local farmers and get to know more people in the community.
So what are you waiting for? We encourage you to give one of our Farm To Table dinners a try this summer & fall. Keep an eye on our events page for this year’s Farm To Table Dinner schedule. We think you’ll love it!
