Farm to Grill to Table
The farm to table movement has certainly hit Wichita! But since it’s summer, how about the “farm” to grill to table? Read on
to see what the buzz is all about.
It seems like ever since Covid came to stay in 2020, more and more people have turned to backyard vegetable “farming.” And those who aren’t growing veggies in the backyard are heading one of the many farmer’s markets in the Wichita area on many days during the week.
What most of us have learned the last few years is that fresh fruit, veggies, eggs, milk, cheese, and meat simply taste better when we grow them ourselves or buy them from a local farmer.
Enter the farm to table movement. We’ve taken it one step further, and we’re going farm to grill (think Big Green Egg) to table.
Let’s Go Farm to Grill to Table
The farm to table movement means that people are sourcing their food locally. This may be from natural or organic growers, but it always means buying your food from local growers or producers.
This ensures that your food is fresh. It isn’t coming from a big grocery store or big box store. Your ingredients are pre-packaged, they’re fresh, and there was very little time between the growing season and landing on your dining room table.
You know about the farm to table movement, but what happens in the middle? Well, you have to cook it, right?
The step in between farm and table is cooking it naturally on your Big Green Egg.
Why Make the Middle Step the EGG?
It’s quite simple, really. When you take grass-fed, pasture raised, local meat, and locally grown produce, they just taste better cooked on the EGG.
You’ll find that local food is higher quality than food that’s been trucked across the country and was picked or cut weeks and weeks ago.
Your Big Green Egg can help you capture this freshness. You get full flavor cooking over live coals made from pure, all natural hardwood.
The heat retention and convection capabilities of the Big Green Egg lock in the natural flavors.
The EGG Cooks All That Local Food
Because the Big Green Egg can grill, roast, smoke, and bake everything that comes from the farm, you can cook everything all at once.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a steak, ears of corn, grilled tomatoes, or a peach pie. The EGG cooks it all better.
With locally sourced food you know just where your food comes from. Much of it is organic. Animals are healthier because they’re feed natural diets.
You can rest assured because you know your fruit, veggies, dairy products, and meat come from a healthier place. You feel better buying from local farmers. Gas isn’t being wasted trucking it long distances.
Your Big Green Egg is the perfect partner in the farm to table movement. The EGG works to cook your food in a healthy, natural way. So you can trust not only where your food comes from but how it is cooked.
