2015-2016 Annual Report

July 2016’s Business of the Month Award

Congratulations to the Hatfield House Culinary Experiences for being awarded Waste Check’s Business of the Month for July 2016. The owner and staff go far above and beyond promoting waste reduction and separation through their everyday operations. They fully participate in waste separation programs throughout the establishment. Examples of their commitment include: donating used cooking oil to local residents for reuse, and purchasing local as it becomes available. The Hatfield House has a green house and two gardens on site. All fruits, vegetables, and herbs are used daily in their kitchen and meals are tailored as to what is in season to minimize waste. Paper place mats are used to line the rows in the gardens to help control the weeds and are also used to line their green carts. Flower arrangements that are placed in and around the restaurant are hand picked from the yard. The restaurant is decorated with reused items, such as fine china and framed pictures, that were donated to them by local residents. A big thank you to the Hatfield House Culinary Experiences for setting a great example for other businesses to follow. Keep up the great work!
