Taylor will be managing on the floor for various shifts in addition to assisting with various front-of-house administrative needs.

Season has taken on the management of catering and event planning (both at The Farmhouse and off-site), as well as bringing the restaurant’s kitchen and patio gardens into the 2014 growing season.   (See our “Private Dining & Special Events” page for details and Season’s contact info.)

These are two extremely hard-working and talented ladies, and we’re sure they’ll be a wonderful asset to The Farmhouse’s management team!

Good-bye 2013, Hello 2014!

What a great year we’ve had! We have gone through quite a few changes this year, and they have all been for the best.  We have met so many new friends, customers, farmers, staff members… We’ve also been part of so many celebrations! Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, babies, and more! THANK YOU KANSAS CITY! We could not have done it without you, and we know it!

We are nearing the end of the year, and we still have a few things up our sleeves, and we want to share them with you!  We’ll be closed on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, but have no fear!  We will be ringing in the New Year with a special dinner, and would love for you to join us!  You can reserve your spot over the phone or online, and if you already have plans but would still like to start the year with us, join us for a New Years Day Brunch!!

Reservations are already coming in, and questions regarding the menu as well… we are finishing the details on our menu and we’ll post teasers on our Facebook/Twitter accounts as we get the “Ok” from our Chefs.

And don’t forget, we LOVE to hear from you!  Share your photos & the  #RoosterLove with us and let us know you are a #FHFoodie!  We love interacting with you on social media, or responding to questions, comments, etc. when you contact us on our page.

Love,

The Posting Rooster
