How to brew a French Press coffee at home

From time to time, we may get a guest asking us “What is French Pressed Coffee?” or “Why do you only serve French Press?”

We LOVE having French Pressed coffee at The Farmhouse! It allows you to control how dark or light you would like your brew, plus you get a greater depth in flavor that you would otherwise miss from other brewing methods! It’s simple to do, perfect for a “lazy morning” at home where you can just let it steep while getting ready or have it at the center of the table while chatting with your dinner guests! If you’ve never enjoyed a French Press coffee, why not order one next time you join us? If you like it, get a French Press and start brewing at home! You can click here for a quick tutorial on how to brew the perfect French Press, and if you would like it to have that Farmhouse taste, don’t forget to buy your coffee from Broadway Roasting Co!

The Farmhouse through YOUR lens: Sep 28-Oct 4, 2017

We say it time, and time again! We LOVE seeing YOUR pictures!! We’re always looking at photos guests tag of us, whether on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.  This time, I decided to start a little project and instead of doing a #TBT  I’ll start sharing your photos on our website!  What is it about The Farmhouse that makes you want to snap a shot? Is it our food? A delicious cocktail? Perhaps our decor? Maybe it is a great moment with family and friends!

I always find it fascinating to see what photos our guests end up sharing on social media when they visit with us. I will try to share with you every week 7 photos/posts that guests have taken while visiting us.  These will be in no specific order, it could be a photo with 500 likes, or not even one… perhaps it is a food about a cocktail or a painting, or a dog… could be from either social media source, an event… you get the idea! If it was a public post, tagged, or checked in, we look forward to share it with guests!  Of course, we’ll contact you before posting a photo of a face to make sure you’re ok with that.  There will be no specific order, just awesome photos taken by you, our guest. We want to see and share what you see through your lens!!

“The Farmhouse sets gold standard in River Market”

Are you familiar with KC Healthy Kids? No? Well, we think it’s time for you to check them out! Since 2005 they have work tirelessly to improve access to affordable fresh food and safe places to walk and play. When our neighborhoods support healthy habits, we are less likely to suffer from obesity, which is linked to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and poor mental health. They are helping KC shape policies that improve our food system and physical surroundings, and, ultimately, the places where we live, work, learn, and play. And you know what? What better time to start than right now, when we’re kids so that when we grow up, we already have these wonderful habits and resources at our disposal?

One of the new initiatives from KCHK is Carrot Gold, which is setting the standard for excellence in food service. This customizable program lets restaurants like ours alongside grocers, hospitals, colleges and corporations move toward an ideal operating standards in three categories: local food sourcing, sustainable kitchen practices and healthy eating.

We’re very proud to be featured in one of their articles about our commitment and work with their Carrot Gold Standard!
