Making Healthy Food Adena's Hottest Private Club Amenity

With today’s growing demand for healthy living, Club members, developers and homebuyers are focusing the long-term benefits of integrating agriculture into real estate and club development. According to a recent article by CityLab, “Environmentally conscious construction and building systems are old news at this point, but building-integrated food production is a relatively new and growing area of focus.” The green aspect of integrated food production is cutting down on the energy use and fuel emissions associated with transporting the food. More important, store-bought meat and produce can seem far from risk-free.

Store-bought meat and produce can seem far from risk-free.


At Adena, a new private club community in Ocala, Florida, owner Frank Stronach placed a high priority on top quality meats and produce. The Club’s supply of beef and other proteins come directly from Adena Farms, another Stronach Group entity created to supply the company’s restaurant venture, Adena Grill. The produce is also procured locally and held to the highest standards.

1. Place of Origin:

The certified organic pasture raised chicken come from Adena’s own ranch and processing facility in Ocala, Florida. This way Adena is able to guarantee the quality and tractability of all its meats.


2. Healthier

By managing the entire process from farm to table, communities like Adena can make certain they are eating hormone-free grass-fed meat and pesticide-free organic produce. This method also allows the land and animals to be treated with respect, producing all-natural food at its finest.


3. Better Flavor

Farming the way our grandparents used to- with room to roam, zero stress and no hormones or antibiotics- delivers fuller, richer and more intense flavors. The menus and dishes at Adena were tested and refined to the discriminating palate of Frank Stronach.


Adena is a place defined by the strength of its principles, the beauty of the land and those determined to live life well. To learn more about dining at Adena, click here.
