Support Local

Eat Local, Buy Local, Support Local!

There is no better feeling that the happiness we get when receiving a message from our guests with photos of their own version of our dishes that they made at home.  We got once a photo via Facebook message from a guest who loved our melon salad so much, that before leaving the restaurant they asked us about every farmer we used for that dish & where to find them. Our guest then went to all the farmers market where our farmers would set up & purchased from our same farmers, bought the same awesome ingredients, went home and made the melon salad for their family. That was AWESOME!! It made us SO happy to see that, we are still writing about it 2.5 years later!
You may have seen us use the tags #EatLocal #SupportLocal #ShopLocal #Localvore, etc on our social media posts and we don’t use them just for you to come and join us for a wonderful meal; we want you to do so outside of our doors as well!  That is why we post our list of our farmers on our website and on our chalkboards in our Lounge and Gallery rooms: so you can see where we get our awesome produce and meats, and get the same quality ingredients from the awesome local families we work with, for your own family.

Every month on our newsletter we showcase a local farmer or company we work with. Why? Because we want you to know where the produce and meats that make it to your plate come from. We want you to support your local businesses and keep the wonderful and hardworking families from KS & MO afloat. We want you to be able to get the best quality ingredients not only when you dine with us, but also in your own home.

So, subscribe to our newsletter & get to know your local farmers (plus you’ll get reminders of events, specials & other news at The Farmhouse), go to your local farmers market or join a CSA! Get the best food KC has to offer in your own home!

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!!
