Buttermilk egg salad is one of the dishes to be featured at this year’s event.

In an effort to promote local agriculture, Eat Green Tennessee is promoting 24 restaurants that have agreed to donate a portion of their sales to support The Land Trust of Tennessee.  The organization’s mission is “to preserve the unique character of Tennessee’s natural and historic landscapes and sites for future generations.”

Caitlin Mello, a spokesperson for The Land Trust of Tennessee, said that “everyone has a stake in this…protecting local farms, local produce, and all of our many projects conserving Tennessee affects us all”.

Participating restaurants include The Capitol Grille, Lockeland Table, Chago’s Cantina, and The Stone Fox. They will be serving farm-to-table fare that reflects different in-season ingredients in the all-day event. 

The proceeds are intended to raise funds and awareness about the mission of the Land Trust of Tennessee, in addition to the protection of farms and other nature preserves.

More Farm-to-Table events are happening throughout Tennessee in June, with events such as Family Farm Day on June 9th, and Happy Hour on the Farm at Green Door Gourmet every Thursday.
