Our Food & Beverage Sustainability Program at Signal Mountain Lodge is a leader amongst National Park Concessionaires and is continually improving and expanding. We are 3-Star Certified by the Green Restaurant Association and a member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. Our Food and Beverage operations work with all of our property-wide initiatives as well as some specific to the restaurant outlets. Listed below are some of our initiatives:
We use automatic dishwashing detergent, sanitizer, and degreaser that are biodegradable and do not contain NTA or chlorine bleach.
All of our to-go packaging and paper products are made from recycled and/or renewable resources.
We purchase CSAs for the Peaks Restaurant and staff use from Robinson Family Farm & Ranch in Bedford, WY.
We purchase grass-fed whole cows from Robinson Family Farm & Ranch for our staff.
All our burgers are from the grass-fed angus ranch HD Dunn & Son in Tetonia, ID.
We only purchase seafood approved on the Green List from Seafood Watch.
We strive to purchase as locally as possible, and research our carbon footprint for large quantity items.
We work to purchase items that are organically or sustainably produced.
We use eggs that are cage free, and milk that has not been treated with hormones such as rGBH.
Our homemade dough at Leek's Pizzeria is made with organic flours and cage-free eggs.
We are ISO 22000 certified.
This is just a partial list of our programs. We have a 'Wall of Sustainability' in our restaurant building that showcases our programs as well as several of our vendors. Stop by to see our latest efforts!
