Fryer Oil Recycling

Adopt a Farm

This program is to increase our connection with local farmers by sourcing items locally and committing to purchase from them. We first visit the farms with our culinary team to initiate our partnership. Then we order through our local produce provider to bring those items to campus. We host Farm Tours and Events around our local farms. On Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Seminole Dining officially adopted its first farm for the Adopt a Farm program.

Full Moon Apiary

Full Moon Apiary is located just 27 miles from campus in Monticello, FL. This local small farm delivers us honey made from happy bees. It is our promise to utilize this local honey in as many outlets as possible.
