October is the time to go out and celebrate your favorite local restaurant. There are many ways to participate including Taste of Downtown Boise Week, Idaho Preferred’s crafted Idaho Restaurant Guides and Trails,  as well as simply just trying that new place you’ve been eyeing.

Idaho Farm To Table Restaurants

What’s the difference between “Idaho Restaurants” and “Idaho Farm to Table Restaurants”? Our Farm to Table Restaurants have been vetted, providing a very specific list of chefs that have a connection to their local farmers, ranchers and craft food artisans. Our Farm to Table Restaurants use Idaho products in almost all of their dishes. 

Idaho’s Farm to Chef Connection 

Idaho Preferred’s “Idaho Farm to Chef Connection” is a special video series featuring chefs from throughout the state of Idaho who are committed to using locally-sourced ingredients from Idaho farm and ranch families.  We are delighted to feature these culinary artists and their farm-to-fork restaurants. When you dine out, remember to look for the Idaho Preferred logo to ensure the establishment commits to using locally sourced, Idaho grown ingredients.
