Welcome to the 2018 Local Table Annual Resource Guide!
Find Local Table Magazine
As we prepare to go to the printers, spring has finally arrived! The world may seem a bit chaotic at the moment, but the arrival of spring turns the world into a shimmering, shiny diamond. Bulbs have come back to life, gardens are getting planted, spring sounds of frogs, crickets and birds bring the outdoors alive. The adrenaline rush is a physical thing—you can see it in your fellow world travelers and the animals. Everyone feels better with some sunshine on their shoulders. Local Table is all about connecting you to the farming and artisan producer world around you in Middle Tennessee. It shouldn’t be such a big deal to have access to fresh and locally grown produce and meats, but it seems like it’s become a luxury. And, it shouldn’t be. We should all have equal access to fresh and healthy food. More

Would You Like To Try Some Goat Cheese?
I’m a millennial who moonlights on weekends as a promoter of goat cheese!
My mission is to entice shoppers to sample this creamy, tangy, twangy delicacy form of cheese. Goat cheese is incredibly satisfying. There are many different types of goat dairy products, with goat cheese being the most well known. Chevre, pronounced “chev”, is the French (or fancy) name for spreadable, soft goat cheeses. These cheeses have a milder taste, but may come in many different flavors from sweet to savory. It doesn’t stop there; you can try goat Feta cheese, goat Gouda cheese and many rolled goat cheese logs. Goat dairy also includes goat cheese yogurt and goat milk. More
