For the second time Shelburne Farms has made the Good Food 100 Restaurants list.

Good Food recognizes restaurants across the country not only for the high quality of their food but also those working hard to create a food system that is good for every link in the food chain: the environment; plants and animals; farmers, ranchers and fishermen; purveyors; restaurants; and eaters.

“This honor is particularly poignant this year as COVID-19 forced us to pivot significantly in how we provide healthy, local food to the community, and connect people to where their food comes from,” said Alec Webb, President of Shelburne Farms. “Instead of farm-to-table, this year it has been farm-to-community.”

The Inn at Shelburne Farms has been closed this season due to COVID-19, but the farm quickly transitioned to running a “curbside pickup” operation offering produce grown in the farm’s 7-acre market garden as well as ready to heat meals prepared by the Inn’s chef and his team.

A founding member of the Vermont Fresh Network, 80 percent of the food served at Shelburne Farms is either grown there or comes from other Vermont producers.
