The Kitchen at
Fat Beet Farm
For fresh, local produce lovers like us, the ever-growing Farm-to-Table movement is one of the most exciting food developments we have seen in decades. If you are not already familiar, Farm-to-Table (sometimes called Farm-to-Fork) is a concept that involves food that is grown locally, sold locally, and prepared by our talented chefs in our state-of-the-art production facility for our local clientele. And of course, where incredible freshness is found, the flavor follows.
Menu & Catering
Fat Beet Farm serves fresh farm pies and produce, and our menu consists of large meals that typically feed two to four people. We will also be offering catering and delivery for larger parties in the future.
Our big, beautiful bio-digester is the heart of Fat Beet Farm. It breathes life into all corners of our farm and allows us to grow a bounty of food while also replenishing the land sustainably.
Through our reclamation ecology efforts, we are able to help maintain and improve the condition of our natural Florida wetland and coastal ecosystems.
In our effort to remain as sustainable as possible, we installed a 90-panel solar grid on the roof of our Microgreens Shed, which allows the Florida sun to power almost all our operations.
At Fat Beet Farm, we practice soil enrichment, composting, and vermiculture to keep our soil in the best possible condition. With the unique difficulties that come along with farming in Florida, maintaining healthy soil is one of the things that keeps our farm going strong.
At Fat Beet Farm we collect rainwater for our plants and fish. By collecting rainwater, we can use less fresh water from the city but also prevent any contaminants from city water from harming any of our farming activities.
From bees to mushrooms to chickens and more, we work hard in our coastal farming efforts to provide the best possible environment for our plants and animals to thrive.
We have coastal farming practices in place for our:
Fat Beet Farm is a coastal farm dedicated to sustainability, education, and restoring the farm-to-fork connection.
We have created a closed-loop system where the food is grown on the farm, cooked in our kitchen, and all of our food waste & scraps are used to create organic fertilizers for the next season of crops. Our goal is to be the model for the future of sustainable farming and a true farm-to-table concept.
