Beechwood Inn offers Farm to Table Dinners and seeks to reconnect food to its origins and people to their food by serving local, seasonal, and sustainable food for breakfast, at our nightly wine-thirty, and for our Saturday Chef’s Table-Style Dinners. To further enhance our diner’s farm to table experience we operate Grow, Cook, Eat – Culinary Garden, an organic vegetable, herb and edible flower farm in Rabun County.

Our farmers collaborate closely with the kitchen to grow heirloom and native landrace crops, expanding even more the potential for our kitchen to provide an outstanding dining experience. We proudly farm organically, and utilize a broad array of heirloom and native varieties grown in this region for centuries. These landraces create a biodiverse, sustainable and flavorful alternative to everyday foods.
