The Rural Seed offers breakfast and lunch dishes, made with fruits, vegetables and meats from Polk County farms, including Pleasants’ own field, located a few miles away in Lynn.
The owners have also partnered with Saluda’s Bradley Farms, which will provide locally-raised beef, pork and poultry for the kitchen, as well as Tryon’s Sunny Creek Farm, which will supply the restaurant with salad greens. Columbus’ Standing Stone Breads is also providing the kitchen with a variety of breads and buns for the menu’s assortment of sandwiches and burgers.
The menu offers traditional American favorites, with some Mexican and Asian-inspired influences. For breakfast, guests can enjoy staples such as pancakes, waffles and French toast, while for lunch, the kitchen offers a variety of burgers, tacos, salads and sandwiches.
Guests can enjoy their meals in the casual dining room, which is accented by local photographs on the walls.
