FORT WAYNE, IND. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – ‘Savor Fort Wayne’ is officially underway!
There are more than 50 locations participating this year.
‘Savor Fort Wayne’ gives you a chance to help support your local growers. At least 10 restaurants feature dishes sourced from here, in Northeast Indiana.
Fort Wayne’s NBC went to a few restaurants participating to find out why they choose to get their meat locally.
Both Bravas and Junk Ditch are two of the 50 some locations offering a special menu for ‘Savor Fort Wayne.’
They both get their meat form Wood Farms, and say getting their meat locally is something they take pride in.
Dennis Wood, who owns Wood Farms, said “If people choose to buy beef raised by Wood Farms, they are getting beef that is raised by no chemicals. These are certified organic farms. You know who your farmer is, you know where the meat comes from, you know the history of the beef. It’s premium quality meat. No chemicals, raised in outside air, not confinement farms, sustainability, and ethically.”
Andrew Smith, who owns Junk Ditch said, “At the end of the day the most important thing to us is making sure the flavor is good on the plate, and generally if you raise an animal like that the flavor is better.”
Savor Fort Wayne goes until January 20th.
