2. The inspiration behind Back 40 Restaurant was to expand Timbercreek Market into a locally-sourced dining experience featuring the best possible ingredients at affordable prices! Located in the historic Coca Cola Building, Back 40 Restaurant uses meats and vegetables sourced directly from Timbercreek Farm!
