About a month ago, two of our Puckett’s restaurants participated in a day-long campaign called “Eat Green for Tennessee,” in an effort to raise money for an organization that is near and dear to us, The Land Trust for Tennessee.
The Land Trust serves to protect Tennessee farmland, open spaces and other landscapes to ensure that the great people of Tennessee will continue to have places to farm, fish, hunt, bike, relax and eat locally.
Why is the Land Trust so important to us? Funny you should ask! As a matter of fact, one of our very own properties, Homestead Manor, is under a land trust. If you’ve been out to see us in Thompson’s Station, you may or may not know that in addition to a beautiful historic home that houses our restaurant, Harvest, plus an awesome barn that’s used as an event venue, we’re sittin’ on 50 acres of land, 40 of which are a working farm! It’s out there that we grow organic ingredients and take them right on up to the house to use in the restaurant (how’s that for farm to table?) and it’s through protection of the Land Trust that we’ll always be able to keep the farm goin’ and growin’!
So, back to Eat Green for Tennessee. Together with over 30 other restaurants and breweries, Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Nashville and Chattanooga pledged to donate a percentage of the day’s proceeds on Sept. 14 to the Land Trust.
We are beyond proud to announce that our two participating restaurants were able to donate nearly $2,000 combined!
We gathered the Puckett’s troops and presented checks at the Nashville and Chattanooga restaurants to the Land Trust. We do our best to give back to as many deserving organizations as possible and were thrilled to be able to participate in this campaign.
