Understanding the Farm-to-Table Movement
Bay Area Caterers Embrace Farm To Table
Perhaps you’ve been hearing the term “farm to table” more often lately, but you’re not sure what it means. Popular restaurants and catering companies in the Bay Area are increasingly using a farm-to-table ethos on their menus, representing a shift towards more sustainable and locally-focused methods of acquiring and preparing food.
Produce, meat, and other ingredients in catered meals often come from all over the world, representing a great deal of transportation costs and diminished food freshness. Companies advertising farm-to-table catering in San Jose indicate they work with local farmers to obtain their ingredients, from fresh vegetables and herbs to luscious fruits to locally (and, often, more humanely) raised livestock.
The best catering companies in the Bay Area often obtain as many ingredients from local farmers as they can for many reasons, such as:
- They want to support the local economy and grow local businesses.
- Local, seasonal ingredients look and taste better, in addition to retaining more nutrients.
- They save money that would otherwise have gone towards expensive transportation methods across the country or world.
