FAQ # 1: What is THAT??

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series FAQ

Answer:  This, is house-made ketchup!!

20150917_143843 If we are giving you the freshest ingredients… wouldn’t it make sense that EVERYTHING in your plate is freshly made??

We think so!!

So that little ramekin of red goodness on the side of your sandwich, your steak, or just right next to your fries… is fresh, house-made ketchup!!  No preservatives, no corn-syrup, no MSG added to it… just tomatoes and spices.  And a lot of patience from our dear Drew who spends about 4 hours each time cooking it!  When it finally cools down, we are ready to serve it to you!

Now you know!

The #PostingRooster is back!

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series FAQ

stock-illustration-67544289-question-mark-roosterNo, our page did not get hacked…. our General Manager likes to call herself “The Posting Rooster” on Twitter when interacting with our guests!  So, the #PostingRooster is back and wants to move our FAQ from random posts on social media, to entries on our blog.  Is there something you’d like to know about The Farmhouse? Then hop on the Twitter bandwagon and ask and tag the #PostingRooster!  Every Monday morning, a question will be answered on our blog… will it be YOUR question??

You’ll never know if you don’t ask…

We proudly support our local farmers!


A couple of months ago, I had to pleasure to meet Mr. Anthony Ladesich while he was having lunch at The Farmhouse, he then told me that he wanted to work with us in a short little video which would showcase the work that we do with our local farmers.  While KC has a lot of wonderful things to be known for, not that many people outside of Kansas City seem to know the wonderful farm-to-table movement taking place in this great city of ours.  He mentioned it would be in collaboration with our friends at Visit KC, and Gibbs Road Community Farms.  That was all I needed to hear. I looked for Chef Foust and told him he needed to meet Mr. Ladesich and hear his ideas.  We could not wait to be part of such a wonderful short film!!

It feels weird for us to talk about ourselves, however, if you ask us something about our farmers… please grab a seat because we have SO MUCH to tell!!  What is there not to love about our local farmers?? They are right here in KC, on our back yard, working day in and day out in order to grow the best animals and produce ever.  To be able to talk to them and ask them “Hey! How are you doing? How is this weather treating you?” And to hear that the big storm really hit hard this farmer north of KC, but it skipped this other one that is located south of KC… that for one farmer with these crops is loving the rain, but this other one is making it hard on his “not so thirsty crops”, is a real eye opener to all their hard work and dedication.  It brightens my day when I see any of our farmers walking through our door, and I look forward to those few free minutes of catching up and seeing how everything is working out for them.

We would like to thank Visit KC, Mr. Anthony Ladesich and of course, Gibbs Road Community Farms for allowing us to be part of this wonderful little film, and for letting us shed a bit more light to how great it is to support our local farmers.  Don’t forget to check out our full list of farmers that we work with!!

Can you believe it is already September?

We can’t!  It seems that not that long ago we were serving KC’s couples a lovely Valentines day, or our dear moms and dads a special brunch to celebrate them…. heck, it seems like yesterday we celebrated our 6th birthday on the 4th of July!!!  And now, the air is starting to get its crisp again, the pools have now closed, and kids have gone back to school! Whoa!!

A lot of changes are also happening here at The Farmhouse! We’re working on new menu items, both for our bar and our food, as well as a whole new season of special events planned out! Make sure to keep an eye on our events calendar so you don’t miss out on any of our collaborations or special dinners that we have planned out!

Also, don’t forget that we LOVE seeing your photos of your visit with us!  Whether you like to use Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, we keep on checking for your photos with the hashtags #RoosterLove or #MyFarmhouseKC. It also does make it easier if you tag us @TheFarmhouseKC.  🙂  Oh, and yes, we also love sharing your photos with the rest of our Farmhouse family, so we’ll share, retweet and repost your love!!

 

We look forward to your next visit!

We’ll be CLOSED for service on Monday, August 10th.
