The Farm – to – table movement has been rapidly gaining recognition. This movement is concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to local customers with minimal if any storage, processing, packaging, and direct sales.
It is also an attempt to provide the freshest ingredients and to educate customers about the link up between farmers and production practices around the food we eat.
The trend in food service has the term “locavore” and “artisianal” seemingly to have hit every menu. We know it has hit mainstream as we see the spoof on farm – to – table shown on the Portlandia TV Series, where the waitress is discussing the life of their chicken Colin and where he spent his days- poking fun at this way of education- yes, but it’s also getting people asking the question- where does my food come from?
With a rise in genetically modified foods, we thought here at Bodhi Tree – we should dig a little deeper on where our food comes from.
Here is what I found out:
All of our fish is from Garza. Our chicken is from Hojancha. Some of our fruits and vegetables are from Organicos el Cerro, near Nicoya. Coffee in the buffet is from Zaragoza -the mountains just outside of Nosara.
Feels good to know where it’s coming from! Bodhi Tree is trying to help bridge the gap between our neighboring farms to the Bodhi Tree table. Do you know where your food is coming from?
