Sourcing local foods is more than just a philosophy at The Hermitage Hotel; it's a way of life. With a longstanding history in Nashville, The Hermitage Hotel has remained consistently invested in supporting the city's development, including the sustenence of local farms and the preservation of its exquisite natural landscape.
Following the success of the garden at Glen Leven, we realized that we would need more land to foster more locally sourced foods. In 2012 we purchased a 250 acre cattle farm nestled between the hills of White Bluff, Tennessee and bordering Montgomery Bell State Park. Named Double H Farms, the property is home to the more than 150 head of Red Poll Cattle that supply delicious marbled beef to the Capitol Grille. Additional beef is wholesaled to other restaurants in the city.
When you read that your ingredients have made their way from the farm to the table in front of you, it is no exaggeration. We truly believe in serving meals without any interference from a second party. Between the garden at Glen Leven and Double H Farms we have witnessed the fruits of our relationship with The Land Trust for Tennessee, and continue to focus our energies on honoring this commitment to the wellsprings of natural resources our state has to offer.
