Here our Farmhouse chefs will be posting tasty tidbits and ideas to make the most of the sumptous local, seasonal produce we have in our hands throughout the year. 

These recipes are not necessarily what we are cooking in the restaurant; this isn't a "make your own Farmhouse", but more of a few tips to help celebrate and enjoy local, seasonal eating..
