The Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville, KY is a great example of the restaurant industry taking the initiative to support local farmers. The Bristol has been in business since 1977 and currently has 5 restaurant locations. They have had a long history of working with local farmers and are currently working closely with the Farm to Table program to keep that history alive today. The Farm to Table program has been a key ingredient to increasing the availability of local products to the Bristol Bar & Grille. In 2011 the Bristol committed to putting a Kentucky Proud Feature of the Day on their menu, which features a dish made primarily with local ingredients daily. In addition to the Kentucky Proud Feature of the Day the Bristol also offers 4 other menu items that represent local farms and their products on a regular basis.
