Ep 149: Farm-to-Table Restaurant AND Goat Hikes?!

In this episode, we’ll learn how a small rice farm near Jacksonville, Florida transformed to include an orchard, farm-to-table restaurant, an event space, and even the chance to take a hike with goats. Scott Meyer and Lindsay Scott are the owners of Congaree and Penn. In our interview today, Scott and Lindsay will explain why they decided to open a restaurant that highlights regional produce and specialty dishes from local chefs as well as how impactful having an agritourism hotspot has been since the start of the pandemic.
