About The Harvest Table Restaurant
The Harvest Table works with seasonal produce and meats from local and regional sources, offering the best of each season. Creative recipes are designed to highlight freshness and quality, favoring real foods prepared in a healthy way; nothing on the menu is deep fat fried. From start to finish, The Harvest Table invests in the health of the community and the land, trying to maximize the number of people who benefit from their existence. It began as an extension of the bestselling book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, written by its director, Steven Hopp, his wife Barbara Kingsolver and two daughters. The story about one family’s year-long experiment to eat in-season locally grown foods has become more than just their story. Thousands of folks have told stories of reclaiming a healthier food culture–they found their local farmers’ market, raised chickens and planted gardens. This book, and others, have inspired individuals, families and communities to be involved in local food movements.
