GOOD FOOD STARTS AT THE ROOTS
Our roots are deeply embedded in a history of cultivating food from planting to plating, during a time when farm-to-table still meant backyard-to-kitchen. Our experience in food production and agriculture has made us leaders in artisan cheese, microbrewing, organic produce and more while allowing us to create unique local- and regionally-sourced dining experiences across the state.
Here, you can stroll around the state capitol, enjoying fresh bread, baked goods and juicy produce from the farmers’ market by day and a gourmet meal at one of the best restaurants in the Midwest by night. Here, you can eat to your heart’s content at one of a thousand Friday fish fries while the dim supper club lights reflect off the glass of an Old Fashioned. Here, you can taste food that matches the passion behind it, food that’s always fresh, distinct and homegrown.
