Eat, Drink and Savor Your Farmland During Dine Out for Farms

The fall season brings with it new produce to fill our refrigerators and tables. Across the country, we bite into crisp sweet apples and start getting reacquainted with our ovens. With restaurants increasingly using more local products and farm fresh ingredients, you can now find your favorite seasonal flavors when you are dining out.

American Farmland Trust is celebrating delicious food and the farmers and land needed to grow it—while giving diners and restaurants a great way to support farms and farmland—during our second annual Dine Out for FarmsTM week from October 16 to 22. With participating restaurants in 22 states and Washington, D.C.—from Seattle, Washington, to Charleston, South Carolina—a wide range of locally sourced ingredients and dishes can be found to suit many tastes.

Dine Out for FarmsTM restaurants are participating in a variety of ways. Check out your closest participating Dine Out for FarmsTM location and join the cause to help save farms and farmland. A special thanks goes out to our “Farmers’ Champion” restaurants: Founding Farmers, Jaleo, and Café Milano in the Washington, D.C. area and Galletto Ristorante in Modesto, California.

Check out some of the buzz:
