Meadowview, VA Edition: Harvest Table Restaurant

By Candace Nelson - 10:00 AM

MeadowviewAs part of my book club I'm in, I recently read "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver

MeadowviewAnd, yes, it's a food-related book club.

MeadowviewBut what I didn't know until my friend Jayne pointed it out was that there's a restaurant in Meadowview, Virginia, inspired by the book: Harvest Table Restaurant.

MeadowviewThere's an adjoining Farmers' Guild, which showcases products from more than 200 artisans.


We began as an extension of the bestselling book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, written by our Director Steven Hopp, his wife Barbara Kingsolver, and two daughters. The story about one family’s year-long experiment to eat in-season locally grown foods has become more than just their story. Thousands of folks have told us stories of reclaiming a healthier food culture--they found their local farmers’ market, raised chickens, and planted gardens. This book, and others, have inspired individuals, families, and communities to be involved in local food movements.The Harvest Table is more than just a restaurant. Over the last ten years, the Harvest Table family has grown to include our kitchen staff, servers, store clerks, farmers, small business owners, artisans and neighbors. Relationships have developed over the common desire to support local and celebrate our Appalachian heritage.  
MeadowviewThe menu is fairly small for lunch, but I went with the Pimento Cheese Sandwich - Kenny's farmhouse chipotle colby garlic pimento cheese.

MeadowviewAnd I asked for a side of pepper jelly to help give it that bit of sweetness.

MeadowviewWho can turn down pimento cheese, though?

MeadowviewTasty! Have you been to this restaurant?

MeadowviewOr, have you read the book? It's really fascinating!
