Triangle restaurants, organizations recognized by National Geographic
Posted March 4, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Triangle institutions Fullsteam Brewery, Top of the Hill Distillery, Market Restaurant, Raleigh City Farm, the Piedmont Farm Tour and the Tour D'Coop were featured in the April 2013 issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine.
The short "Smart Traveler" article titled "Something to Squawk About" recognized the growing farm-to-table and urban agriculture movements taking hold in the area. More farmers, chefs and small business owners are working together to create unique and locally-sourced products for a more informed public.
Fullsteam brews its craft beer with infused local fruit, Top of the Hill makes whiskey from organic grains, and Raleigh City Farm grows crops next to Market Restaurant. The Piedmont Farm Tour and the Tour D'Coop let people see inside modern agriculture, including backyard chicken coops.
Of course, we know that these Triangle institutions are great, and we have lots of hometown pride for them, but it's nice to see them recognized in a magazine that's published in 15 countries and 12 languages! Congratulations!
