The farm to table movement has been growing for years, and since its beginning, people have wondered if it’s simply a passing fad or a new mainstay. Years later, farm to table is still going strong and has seen exponential growth in recent years, so we can safely assume that it’s here to stay in the traditional and grocery online shopping space.
Farm to table, also known as farm to fork, can be defined as a social movement where restaurants source their ingredients from local farms, usually through direct acquisition from a farmer. The food is picked at peak freshness and is bursting with flavors and vitamins. Because the produce is usually very flavorful, many farm to table operations don’t dress their food up with complex sauces and overpowering flavors, instead preferring to let the freshness and flavor of the food speak for itself.
The farm to table movement has had a huge impact on the foodservice industry and how restaurants source and prepare their food. Farm to fork helps to boost the local economy and support local farmers. Because farm to table retailers, grocery online shopping sites, and restaurants deal directly with the farmer, you can be sure that the money spent is going directly to helping farmers grow their businesses and fuel the local economy.
The retailer, restaurant and farmer benefit from farm to table. The restaurant gets delicious and fresh produce, and the farmer gets recognition for their hard work as well as guaranteed business. Additionally, farm to fork retailers, grocery online shopping sites, and restaurants that have a close relationship with one farm can usually request that they plant certain foods.
