Supporting a Sustainable Oxford

Part of what makes Oxford, Mississippi, so unique is the widespread feeling of support for local businesses. The new website http://www.FarmToMenu.com is the perfect testament to this ideal. Launched by Daniel Morrow (some of you may know him as the Oxford Music Snob), the site focuses on showcasing local growers and the restaurants in Oxford that help support them.

More and more we see a growing trend toward sustainability and the purchase of local ingredients. As Daniel points out, it’s not always easy to know who is supporting this movement, and even some restaurateurs may not fully understand how easy it can be to incorporate fresh, locally grown ingredients into their menu offerings.

Through the site FarmToMenu.com, local farmers and restaurateurs have the opportunity to post information, photos and videos about themselves. Consumers can then find exactly where to go if they’re searching for locally obtained meats and vegetables. It’s a site you’ll want to bookmark and revisit often as I’m sure it will continually be updated.

Some restaurants already listed in the directory include:

  • Ravine
  • Honeybee Bakery
  • Emileigh’s Table
  • Big Bad Breakfast
  • Tallulah’s Kitchen
  • Snackbar
  • Boure
  • Bottletree Bakery
  • Deli News
