Five-Leaf Recognition for GMO-Free Food

FIP-logo-webOur greatest passions at Standing Stone span delicious craft beer, happy customers, fulfilled employees, a thriving community, and quality food that tastes great. Our efforts to use responsibly sourced ingredients in our brewpub have earned us recognition from the Food Integrity Project, a venture of Families for Food Freedom.

Through this project, restaurants and food providers are given a rating of three to five leaves based on their commitment to providing menu options that are free of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). At Standing Stone, we are happy to announce we have received the highest five-leaf designation, showing that 90% or more of our menu items are GMO free!

Our kitchen staff is dedicated to sustainable food preparation, and their efforts include using all parts of an ingredient, composting any leftover food scraps, and sourcing local and/or organic ingredients whenever possible, including meat and eggs from our very own One Mile Farm. We think these efforts give our customers and employees the best flavor, freshness, and nutrition possible. We wouldn’t have it any other way!

Other participating Southern Oregon restaurants include Ashland Food Coop, Milagros, Pangea, Greenleaf Restaurant, Bloomsbury Coffeehouse, The Lunch Show, NW Raw Organic Juice Bar, New Sammy’s Cowboy Bistro, Mystic Treats, Jupiter Café, C Street Bistro, and Hot Stuff Espresso. We’re honored to be recognized with these like-minded businesses that take the time and care to source food responsibly.
