ARKANSAS SOYBEAN PRODUCERS ADD POSTMASTERS GRILL TO EDUCATIONAL FOOD PROGRAM
South Arkansas destination educates Arkansans about soybean industry with Natural State ingredients
The Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board’s Kitchen | Fields Table Tour will partner with Camden’s Postmasters Grill during the month of March. The partnership will teach Arkansas consumers about the role Arkansas’s soybean industry has in food production. Postmasters Grill will serve a bone-in pork chop with edamame succotash. The dish is served with information about the benefits of soybean meal in livestock diets like the pork served in the feature dish.
Located in Downtown Camden, Postmasters Grill opened its doors in 2012, bringing new life to the almost-demolished Old Camden Post Office building. Since then, Emily Jordan-Robertson and Tyler Hensley have created a South Arkansas destination through sourcing food and drinks from around the state. Featuring soy-fed pork from Rabbit Ridge Farms in Bee Branch, Arkansas, two-and-a-half hours north of Camden, Postmasters Grill’s featured dish will offer guests a protein-packed meal.
“We look forward to the opportunity and are tickled to be a [Kitchen | Fields Table Tour] feature. We’re always looking to support local [businesses] and source locally as much as possible,” Jordan-Robertson said.
Through the power of food, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour partners exclusively with Arkansas-owned restaurants in various locations throughout the state to teach Arkansans about the impact consumers have on the state’s $2 billion soybean industry. Since its launch in 2015, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour begins in January and runs through June, featuring a partner restaurant’s uniquely mouth-watering take on soybeans from cheesecake to pasta to steak. This delicious food program allows diners to experience the many ways to eat this versatile bean beyond shelled edamame and tofu.
The partner restaurants for the 2018 Kitchen | Fields Table Tour include:
- The Butcher Shop, Little Rock | January
- The Hive, Bentonville | February
- Postmasters Grill, Camden | March
- Three Fold Noodles + Dumpling Co., Little Rock | April
- J Town’s Grill, Jonesboro | May
As the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour travels the state, the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board encourages Arkansans and all who walk through partner restaurants’ doors to eat more soy foods and soy-fed protein, such as pork, beef, turkey and chicken.
