Meet the Local Farmers

Farmers wake up differently than most people. Up with the sun, they work hard to produce some of the highest quality food in Virginia. While you may be thinking “farm-to-table” has been a recent and popular trend for many modern restaurants, you can rest easy knowing we have been following that same philosophy for over 30 years. When you dine at La Table Provencale, you will enjoy every bite knowing our commitment to locally-sourced ingredients started from an excellent relationship with the people responsible for laying the groundwork. We couldn’t build culinary innovation without them.

  • There are very few things in life quite as delicious as bacon. A staple in the American diet for centuries, we believe this humble meat can still be elevated further, especially with the help of Baker’s Farm. They provide us with only the best pork, pork belly, bacon, and even the occasional tete de cochon. Our wonderful breakfast dishes at L’Auberge just wouldn’t be the same these tasty meats.
  • For the rest of our meats, the folks over at Ayrshire Farm provide us with high-quality turkey, chicken, and beef which all play major roles in our dishes. When you take a bite of the incredible Ayrshire Farms meat, presented within our four-course menu, you can thank them for the fantastic flavor combinations.
  • Only a mile away from the Inn, Shenandoah Seasonal is a year-round farm supplying us with only the freshest fruits and vegetables. With quick transport, they ensure maximum quality and delicious flavor. Eating your greens never tasted so fresh.
  • For the highest-quality beef in the area, Martin’s Farm provides us with phenomenal flavor and texture. Featured in our bistro, a must-try is the steak-frites, a 12 oz dry aged new york strip, fries, sauce au poivre.
  • To taste incredibly fresh eggs every day, try out some of our featured breakfast menu items, like the roasted duck breast with herb demi and egg towers or the best eggs benedict you’ve ever tasted. You can thank Keith Trenary and the chickens for all their hard work!
  • Catchy name aside, Jerry’s Berries are some of the sweetest around and give our desserts a little extra oomph that takes them from great to amazing.

In addition, select produce and fresh herbs are grown here on property. When you stay with us, you are more than welcome to get up close and personal with where your food comes from. From garden to plate, it’s a culinary experience unlike any other.
