Feastly and LoveMeButter

September Photo Contest: Source locally, snap photo, win!

Eating exclusively farm-to-table is idyllic, but tough, especially as we rush from work to prepare dinner, or make time for an elaborate brunch between yoga class and shopping trips. There are many great ways to eat and support local producers, but we don’t think sourcing locally should stop at the supermarket or farmers markets. Feastly is partnering with LoveMeButter to provide you with the best grass-fed meat, pastured dairy and wild-caught seafood from Bay Area farmers. LoveMeButter is a delivery-to-your-door subscription service that provides their customers with everyday items like meat, dairy, seafood, eggs, butter – without the hormones and inhumane treatment. Plain and simple, it’s good food from local farmers, unadulterated and ready for you to craft amazing recipes with! Now’s your lucky chance to win a basket from Feastly and LoveMeButter by posting a picture of how you source locally. Here’s the deal: Post a new and original picture to Instagram of your locally-based food – whether you’ve grown it yourself, supported a local farmer, or shared a recipe with a neighbor. Caption the …

Traditions and Rituals: Results Are In!

Feastly asked, and YOU answered! It’s no surprise that our community members see the dinning table as more than just a piece of furniture– It’s a space to connect, share and nourish our lives! A mindful meal shared, or on our own, makes each bite tastier– linking moments and flavors to make our most powerful memories. Here at Feastly, we unplug during lunch, soak in some rays, and taste each others’ food. Recharging together over a meal keeps us focused on our goal to make social dining accessible again. We were honored to read through your dynamic traditions, here is the winner’s story: My most memorable tradition around the dinner table is… “My mother and grandmother are both very superstitious and would never set a table for an odd number, but especially 13. An extra plate would always be set at the table even if it was crowded. No matter the number of times I gave my mom that, “Really?” look, she would shrug and say, “I can’t help it” and the table setting would …
