In this episode of the EATYALL Podcast, we’re recording at Local Feed, a restaurant in Georgetown, Kentucky, about 11 miles north of Lexington. Local Feed is owned and operated by Chef Justin Thompson. After spending the morning on the Hall’s family beef farm nearby, Chef Johnny Streetman and Chef Justin Thompson regroup with Amanda Hall from Hallstead Farm & Meats to discuss everything from staffing shortages to the similarities between chefs and beef farmers.
Justin Thompson, a 25 year veteran of the restaurant industry, also shares some really sage advice about his hiring methods in this crazy season.
The group also wraps up their farm tour by discussing the importance of knowing where your food comes from – and how it gets from one place to another.
