Hotel Domestique and Restaurant 17 Add 22-acre Farm to its Operations

We’re not the only folks who love Travelers Rest and we certainly aren’t the only people who love to write about what’s happening in our town.

Our friends at the Greenville Journal recently shared an article about the changes at Restaurant 17 and the twenty-two acre farm they are adding to their operation. This will allow the restaurant to grow more food itself and to partner with the community in deeper and richer ways.
