Definition of Farm to Table

The farm to table movement advocates for local, seasonal, fresh and organically-produced foods and has been promoted by both farmers and chefs as a means to connect consumers to the source of the ingredients in their meals. Farm-to-table restaurants stock their kitchens directly from local farms or their own gardens, and educate diners about the stages of the food cycle and the effects that their choices have on people, animals, economies and the planet.
