Please note that menus for Farms & Fields are tentative; when working with local and seasonal foods straight from our garden and/or from nearby farms, availability varies. In order to bring you the most local and sustainable items possible, we may have to make slight substitutions from the seasonal menu we have originally planned. Being flexible with what nature provides us is a necessary part of committing to seasonal eating. Thank you for your understanding and support for sustainable foods

      Thank You Lauren! The Kale Parmesan Salad is one of my favorites too! I will pass your comments along to the chef. I’m sure you’ll see the Grilled Cheese again this semester.

    Hi, what happened to the gluten free labels?

      Hi Elise,

      Owens Food Court does not have a Gluten Free kitchen, so we are careful with what we label as Gluten Free. The staff working at the Farms and Fields Project have the recipes and ingredient lists and you can always ask to see the ingredient list. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Thanks @Meghan! We usually serve that during the Fall semester since the butternut is in season then.

    I love eating the your panini, but I recently went gluten free. It would be more then wonderful if you had gluten free bread!!!!

      Hi @maggmac! Thanks for your comment. At this time we are careful to serve anything gluten free that isn’t also prepared and served in a gluten free kitchen. Since the paninis are one of our more popular options at Farms & Fields, I don’t see this changing anytime soon. I will, however, pass your comment on to the chefs at Owens and see if they have any ideas.

      Thanks,
      Rial Tombes

    My favorite thing from Farm and Fields is the honey, tomato, and cheese panini, but I haven’t seen it on the menu in a long time! Will it be back soon? (:

    when Farms & Field’s have their pesto pasta again? it’s my favorite!

      Hi @M, the chefs decide on a weekly basis what the menu will look like for Farms & Fields, but it is based on what is available in season. During the summer, we freeze our basil to be used for pesto throughout the year. Hopefully we’ll be able to serve the pesto pasta one more time this semester.

      Hi Hannah! Because of the nature of the Farms and Fields Project, our menus change daily and we do not have nutrition information for each item. We are, however, able to share our recipes by request. Email sustainabledining@vt.edu if you would like to get recipes. Thanks!
