Have you ever enjoyed an incredible dish full of flavor at a local restaurant? Or maybe you’ve been to Publix and wondered where that tomato in your hand was grown. The questions of where and how food is grown are becoming increasingly popular among restaurants, chefs, and foodies like you!
These questions stem from the fast-growing Farm-to-Table movement. At Fat Beet Farm Kitchen and Bakery, we stay true to the heart of the farm-to-table concept. Our food is nurtured and harvested on our beautiful coastal farmlands – then crafted by our talented chefs into flavorful dishes for you.
What is the Farm-to-Table Concept?
Farm-to-table means that the food on your table came directly from a local farm – no distributor involved. Many farm-to-table restaurants form relationships with local farmers in order to provide fresh dishes.
Fat Beet Farm Kitchen and Bakery practices farm-to-table in our original, modest form – harvesting produce from our 13-acre coastal farmlands and serving it right here on our Farm.
Is farm-to-table better? Most grocery stores and restaurants have produce picked before they’re ripe, then it’s processed and shipped. This can result in food that isn’t fresh or crisp – and can even be less nutritious. You don’t know where your produce came from or if chemicals were used in the growing process.
At Fat Beet Farm, our produce is picked at peak ripeness, a time when it’s bursting with flavor and nutrients. Most produce starts to lose its nutrients after harvesting, but thanks to our sustainable initiatives and farming methods, our produce keeps its nutritional value for up to two weeks! Dedicated farmhands harvest our produce daily and it’s taken directly to our Kitchen, Bakery, and marketplace for our community to enjoy.
