Lunch on the farm! On weekends, from Memorial Day to Columbus Day weekend, we offer a full café lunch menu. Sunday morning also has a brunch buffet with eggs made to order. Sit out at the shaded picnic tables and enjoy the mountain views, or relax inside our 1820s solar-powered farmhouse.
Chef Rob Handel brings a new approach to our menu with both farmed and foraged local ingredients. We feature our own meat and poultry products as well as seasonal foods from other local and regional farms. Each week, there is a changing menu of salad platters, paninis, hearty sandwiches, soups and specialty hot dishes. Try a charcuterie platter with offerings from regional cow, sheep and goat dairies with our own meats and pates on a bed of organic greens. Our award winning Oink and Moo Chili is always available. Our homemade breads and desserts with local fruits and flours are delicious. We carefully plan our weekly special dishes around what vegetables, fruits, meats and poultry are available that week! We are careful to offer vegetarians and gluten free options. You can always eat here or take out.
Note: We are really enjoying the wonderful turnout this season. Although it is not necessary, a reservation is appreciated. Cellphones often don’t work but we offer unrestrictd Wi-Fi service at the cafe.
The Cafe operates all year! From mid-October to end of December, the Bee Knees moves inside and is open every Saturday from 9am-2pm, serving breakfast and lunch made to order. Sunday Brunch is served 9am-1pm each Sunday. After the new year, the Cafe become the “Soup Kitchen,” serving our Oink and Moo Chili, a comforting soup or stew, homemade bread and dessert every Saturday. Perfect for a chilly day.
The full cafe reopens Memorial Day weekend, every Saturday and Sunday with a full lunch menu, Sunday brunch, and special events like pig roasts throughout the summer.
