In the heart of Livingston’s charming town square, Farmer’s Table is changing the way Mississippians grow, prepare and cook food. Using eggs from a farm in Bentonia, honey from Mississippi bees in Flora, and vegetables from a local organic farmer, Farmer’s Table offers cooking classes and events using fresh, local ingredients.
“We hired an organic farmer, Taylor Yowell, of The Farmacy. We have five gardens on three acres of land, and we offer classes around what is coming from the garden,” smiles Bridget. “Taylor will come and deliver fresh veggies straight from the garden the morning of the classes. We absolutely love the passion of working with a local farmer.”
Farmer’s Table is thrilled to be a part of the story of the town of Livingston. “The long term plan is phenomenal and it is really cool to be a part of Livingston,” says Bridget. Farmer’s Table is not only hosting cooking classes, but is a wonderful venue for weddings, receptions, gifts, birthday parties for children and adults, and even bachelorette parties! The room can be changed around to fit any type of special event. Bridget says, “We recently had a bride get married on the town square, then she walked down and had the reception at Farmer’s Table. Another bride married and we did the catering for 250 people in the town square. Celebrating under the 100-year-old cedar trees was simply magical.”
Bridget runs Farmer’s Table, and Matthew Sheeter teaches the cooking classes. They are both delightful, and worked together many years ago at the Viking Cooking School in Ridgeland. The cooking school also offers an incredible retail store up front, with wonderful gifts, cooking utensils, and a Bridal Registry!
“We are so fortunate to be in Livingston. This town boasts live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and brunch on Sundays. It's really cool to be a part of something so special that is just starting out. We are in a perfect spot.”
