We’ve chosen not to put a mile-cap on the concept of “local” for our farm-fresh food at Farms & Fields. To reduce food miles and support the local economy, we strive to bring you food that is produced as close to Virginia Tech as possible. Sometimes that will be 200 miles away, and sometimes that will be less than 10 miles away, from our very own garden. Either way, expect to find local food produced in Virginia and the closest regions of North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
We believe that transparency is important to creating a more sustainable food system. If you ever want to know more abut exactly where your food comes from or how it is produced, contact Dining Services’ Sustainability Coordinator, Rachael Budowle, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
