Sep 28: Autumn Italian Dinner: Autumn is finally here! The secret to the best cooking is sourcing the best ingredients. We believe that the fundamental truth of supporting local farming may be a panacea for many of our 21st century problems in both nutrition and regional economic development. But it is also crucial in our hedonistic search for the delicious and delightful “best place to dine.”

Rabun County in the North Georgia Mountains offers some of the Best Farm to Table Restaurants http://explorerabun.com/best-farm-to-table-restaurants-in-north-georgia/
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 Chefs may have sown the seed for your dinner back in March, observed the sprouts coming out of the ground, tended them, admired them as they pulled them from the soil, and finally they put the finishing touches on the whole project by preparing it for your plate.
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. https://beechwoodinn.ws/local-farms-and-ingredients/
