Say what?! December is almost here already??

Can you believe we only have one more month before celebrating the new year?? It feels like it was yesterday that we were celebrating 4th of July and just a few weeks back it was Valentine’s day! Where did the year go?!? Anyway, no need to ruffle our feathers, it is now time to enjoy the holidays in the River Market!

Let’s welcome autumn with a new menu!

Hello autumn!

With the changes in season, most of the farmers market will be closing within the next few weeks, leaving our farmers without that extra little income and exposure to their goods and who they are. Fear not! We will continue to support them by creating delicious specials, using their delicious seasonal crops so they can keep on going through the colder months.

To welcome the new season, and to continue supporting our beloved farmers, we have debuted our new menu!  Our lunch menu debuted on Monday, September 22nd and on Wednesday September 24th we will debut our new dinner menu.  Come and join us!  Enjoy with us the delicious fall bounty!

Serve you soon!

 

All Aboard!! Our last KC Streetcar Happy Hour is this Friday!

The trails? The Farmhouse? (hint, hint!) Bring a photo that shows what makes it a great neighborhood for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate!  See you soon!!

We’re excited to announce a new music series here at The Farmhouse — Midcoast Roots Thursdays!

Live Music This Thursday at The Farmhouse!

The Farmhouse sponsors…

The Farmhouse is pleased to be a sponsor for WordCamp KC, coming right up this weekend at the beautiful Kauffman Foundation Conference Center.  We hope that aaaaaaaaall the Campers will venture north to our River Market neighborhood to stuff their bellies with some seriously local, seasonal, creative food while they’re stuffing their brains with good info at Camp!  #WCKC2014

We’re also a proud “lane sponsor” of SocialHeart’s Breakfast Bowl event at Z-Strike in the Power & Light District this Saturday, July 12, benefiting Urban Growth KC!

In the Spring of 2010, Urban Growth began growing their our own local produce to donate to charities around the Kansas City Area. Wanting to provide only organic, local, chemical-free, non-GMO, and super fresh produce, UGKC have gone on to develop two urban farm spaces where all of our fresh produce is grown. With our growth, we provide hundreds of servings of fresh produce each season that is all grown from seed, cultivated by our volunteer farm staff, harvested fresh and then donated to our pantry partners within 48 hours. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

As a restaurant focused on feeding the best food to our community, and helping our local growers earn a respectable living, we’re glad to be a part of this event.  #SocialHeart
