Tending the gardenHello, My name is Stuart Partin and I am the Executive Chef at Newman’s Restaurant located in the historic Orchard Inn in Saluda NC.

As a fine dining Chef, I have always searched for the finest ingredients available which over time has lead me to become an avid gardener. This year at the Orchard Inn we have constructed a 4,000 square-foot organic garden to produce the majority of our produce for the restaurant.

I choose to use Sow True Seed Company for all of our seeds because I believe that what they are doing as a business has a hugely positive impact on farming and our environment as a whole. Sow True Seeds also packages and sells some of the best GMO- free seeds that I have ever used.

Our food at Newman’s Restaurant is fully inspired by the season and the harvest from the garden. We change our menu weekly to reflect what vegetables we are harvesting that week. I am excited to partner with Sow True Seeds, and together we will be hosting a Summer Wine Dinner on August 14th that will be showcasing the beautiful produce that we have grown using Sow True Seeds. The cost for this exclusive, five-course meal is $120 per person. Wine pairings will be included with each course.
