Farm-to-Table hot spots

Farm-fresh meals your entire family will love

Farm-fresh meals your entire family will love

The farm-to-table movement is a great way for you to ensure that your family is chowing down on good-for-you grub. It’s also a good way to support local farmers who are working hard to grow humane meat and organic produce.

Here are some of our favorite, local family-friendly farm-to-table restaurants:

Harvest Grill at Pennings Farm
161 South Rte. 94, Warwick. 845-986-1059
Found on the grounds of Pennings Farm in Warwick, this restaurant is a great place to go after a busy day of apple picking. Their menu includes appetizers, burgers, salads and sandwiches, as well as a children’s menu, all made with locally sourced ingredients. The pub even makes their own hard cider.
