For the past few years we at Green Valley Grill in Greensboro have been exploring new ways to bring the freshest, most flavorful foods to our guests while considering the triple bottom line of profit, environmental sensitivity and social responsibility. We call this our "Farm to Fork Initiative." To these ends we’re purchasing some of our meats and seafoods differently. We’re also bringing more and more local produce and artisan-made cheeses. We hope that this Initiative will have long-lasting effects that extend through-out our community. Some of our partners are local farmers who handpick their produce on just a couple acres, and others are larger companies that supply some of the best restaurants in the country with top quality ingredients. We have long believed that the nearer the farm to the fork the better the flavor.
Try some North Carolina wines from our award-winning Wine List. The nearby Yadkin Valley is designated as the first viticultural appellation in North Carolina. There are 150 appellations in United States, including 14 in the southern region. A region can gain an appellation if its soil, growing season, climate and amount of rainfall vary from the surrounding areas. The Yadkin Valley is very distinct with soil that is clayey, well-drained and moderately fertile, which are excellent qualities for grape growing. In the past five years, the number of wineries in North Carolina has leaped from 15 to 40. Take a tour of central North Carolina Wineries.
