Sourcing local ingredients and supporting local farmers and producers is very important to us. We believe that buying locally helps strengthen our economy, allows us to utilize the best ingredients available, helps care for the environment, and builds community. We are always striving to increase the seasonal and local items on our menu as well as to participate in local food systems development efforts.
Because of this, in 2018 we were honored to be presented with a Golden Beet Award by the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. The Golden Beets are “a series of awards created...to highlight progressive local food practices and recognize the people who are pushing the local food movement forward in Illinois.”
We are proud to feature the talented farmers and producers we are currently working with and the wonderful bounty they provide for us. We encourage you to learn more about them by clicking on their names below.
