Why are we so committed to farm-to-table, locally sourced ingredients? Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant is a locally-owned small business, and we pride ourselves on creating a positive impact on the New Bern community and our local NC farmer community as well. We are committed to using local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible, and we purchase over 80% of our produce, herbs, meats, and seafood from local NC farmers within a 90-mile radius. We believe this makes a huge difference in the product we bring to your table, and we hope you enjoy the quality of the food we serve! Our local ingredients come from Putnam Family Farms, Weeping Radish, Nooherooka Natural, and Parker Farms, among others. A special thanks to our farmers and local suppliers!
