The most unique farm to table experiences across Ontario

It’s no secret that modern society has become disconnected from what it takes for a tomato to make it to the dinner table. Farm to table dining rebuilds that bridge in a way that benefits everyone involved from the person who planted the seed to you, enjoying a delicious meal. Not to mention the fact that eating food in-season means you’re consuming everything at its flavour and nutritional peak while reducing your carbon footprint.

Nowhere is the beauty of farm to table dining more wholeheartedly embraced than in Ontario. Every summer, restaurants, chefs and farmers’ markets across the province open their doors, prep their kitchens, and roll out their tables to offer visitors some of the most delectable bites the province has to offer.

In addition to giving you a taste of the local produce, helping reconnect people with where and how their food is grown also supports the local economy. “One of our main goals is to support other farmers who are our neighbours and friends in our community,” says Mike Higgins, co-owner of Lynn River Farm’s Graze restaurant, which offers diners the opportunity to experience where their food is grown firsthand. “It’s real, hard work, growing food.”

Here are some can’t-miss farm to table experiences across Ontario to enjoy this summer.
