Fresh - from March through October much of our food will come from right here at the Stovall House. Our farm, Grove Place Farm, as it was named in 1850, includes herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit. Most of the plants grown here are started from heirloom seed stock (seeds grown and harvested for over 50 years). The Cushaw squash for example has found it's way into vegetable sides and a delicious base for soups.
Nourishing - We value locally grown food for many reasons, not the least of which is providing food that retains optimal nourishment and taste. Vegetables from our farm or other local producers have been harvested within a day or two of serving it. From the views at the Stovall House to the service to the food itself, we want customers to feel nourished and appreciated, literally from the valley that feeds us. We love our community; we love feeding you!
Friendly - describes the atmosphere and our underlying philosophy. Being environmentally friendly is key to our mission. That means choosing local producers whenever possible that provide food that is grown in soil that has been nourished by compost and organic matter, and animals that have been treated respectfully without the addition of unwanted substances that pass through their system into ours. The Sautee Valley where we live has been farmed for centuries. Native people added to the soil with silt from the Chickamauga Creek and organic matter available on site. We prefer this model of layered nutrition in our farm practice.
Growing up in the south we were raised on cornbread, black-eyed peas, greens, and wild foods. At our restaurant you will find these foods and other dishes inspired by our southern heritage served in a fine old southern home.
Come reap the benefits of fresh-nourishing-friendly and best of all, food that tastes fantastic!
