A lot of hotels are making a push for sustainable practices to attract eco-minded clients and to take care of the environment. In fact, some hotels are even taking it to the next level by having their own produce-rich gardens and farms on their establishments. Here are five examples of hotels that will definitely give you that authentic farm-to-table experience.

The Lodge At Woodloch. Located in Hawley, Pennsylvania, this eco-friendly hotel boasts of its three lush green gardens so guests can be assured that fresh dishes are always served. Not to mention, the hotel also has a Healing Garden where various types of herbs are blended into natural oils and used for the hotel's spa treatments.

Blackberry Farm. This secluded and exclusive place in Walland, Tennesse, offers a countryside ambiance for guests most especially with its traditional agricultural practices. According to CNN, aside from growing its own fruits and vegetables on site, the resort also makes its own cheese. It's no wonder why its restaurant's menu won a James Beard Award.

Crosby Street Hotel. Found in the heart of the vibrant city of New York, this gorgeous hotel would surprise you with its leafy garden that's located on the 12th floor. According to Firmdale Hotels, its rooftop garden supplies the hotel with fresh vegetable and fruit produce like tomatoes, squash, herbs, watermelons and blueberries.
