Making Local Sourcing Work: Richmond Station

The Summit seems like it was 10,000 light years ago — but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be using what we learned on that food filled day!

With this in mind, we’re launching the first of our Summit Speaker videos. A�

We also recently launched a brand new restaurant designation program called Feast ON celebrating the chefs and restaurateurs using Ontario food & drink. A�So, in honour of that–and our unyielding love of delicious, seasonal food–we give you the guys behind Richmond Station at the 2013 Ontario Culinary Tourism Summit.

Fun Facts:

  • They purchase from between 60-70 “suppliers” every week
  • Most of their beef and pork come from Dingo Farms, a family run farm in Ontario
  • They’ll never order bacon — they order a whole pig and process it on site
