Tenderhill Restaurant offers organic, locally sourced dishes at a reasonable price. It can be described as a "New American Restaurant", or "fusion" cuisine.  Exciting dishes like "beet terrine with burnt orange coulis, citrus ricotta, beet green pesto and foraged purslane" are now casually available in Readington!  Tenderhill is currently open for lunch, with plans for expanded hours.  It is the result of renovations to the Flying Milk Bar, which burned down several years ago.  Stop in to support this exciting dining option at 405 U.S. Hwy 22 East.

Profeta Farms: A Model for Sustainable Agriculture

Profeta Farms has a mission to "change the way organic food is produced" by offering meat and produce directly from the farm to consumers.  They grow, harvest, prepare and package all of the food on-site at the farm, which not only allows customers to support local agriculture, but to also verify farm practices and rest assured that their food was produced sustainably and humanely.

Along with seasonal produce, Profeta offers pork, chicken and beef.  They are located at the corner of Summer Rd., at 803 U.S. Hwy 202.  Support local agriculture that takes care of the land by shopping at Profeta Farms!  Visit them on the web at http://www.profetafarms.com/.

A Member Farm Tour is scheduled by the Northeast Organic Farming Association on August 5th to showcase Profeta Farms as an organic and sustainable farm.  Space is limited and only available to NOFA-NJ members. Information on becoming a member is available at http://www.nofanj.org/members_join.htm.
