local farms vital to the sustainability of FARMbloomington
We at FARMbloomington like to make friends— and if they can cook, garden or make fun things for us, all the better. Chef Daniel Orr came back to his home state to get in touch with his roots and get his fingers in the soil. FARMbloomington has given him the ability to reach out to local growers and utilize their products.
The farms that are listed below are just some of his partners. The chef creates wholesome, globally inspired dishes with as many locally produced items as he can. This said, the chef wants everyone to know that we are not 100% local or 100% organic. We do what we can and hope to do more in the future.
