As summer comes to a close, what better way to celebrate its end than to dine at a farm. Honor summer's bounty by eating a tomato that has been picked just hours before or enjoy homemade pancakes topped with fresh berries from a bush right beside you. When considering that most produce travels 1,500 miles before reaching your plate, why not travel to the farm for your meal instead. Better yet, take a fieldtrip and tour the farm before you dine.

While many have visited wineries, most have yet to trek to a favored farm for a meal. So get going and partake in a farm feast. Check out our slideshow of 8 farm to table restaurants. As always, we want to hear from you. Tell us what you think in the comments. But first, don't forget to vote on your favorite from farm-to-fork dining spots.
