One of a kind Phoenix dining.
My immediate and extended family have been coming here for years and have ZERO complaints. The food is a buck or 2 more than your typical diner but this isn't your typical dining experience. No place in town compares to the atmosphere and the food is very good. We all love the variety of deserts and the ice tea is excellent. As for the person complaining about occasional ant... HELLO... it's outdoors! And for the person who thought the sandwiches were too expensive... go to Denny's for a cheap meal. They also have a terrific breakfast area, morning Glory cafe, and an excellent evening dining experience @ Quiessence. Thanks for giving us this jewel in the desert.
Not Typical Outdoor Valley Dining!.
I went to lunch at The Farm during the week with some co-workers. It was in an area of the city I thought was iffy, but I was shocked to see the beautiful grove and green field. The line was long, but the food was great. The selection of salads and sandwiches was just enough to have options, but anymore would have been just too much. The homemade desserts looked so good! We ate at a picnic table in a field of trees, but I would have loved to have a blanket to sit on the grass. The food comes in individual little baskets, which makes the picnic idea so great!
Only complaint is the price. The salads and sandwiches were $10 and drinks $2, but the desserts were way over priced. I paid $4 for a peice of pecan pie, and it was so bad. I am from the SE USA and the consistancy was like paste. My co-worker had turtle cheesecake for hte same price and said it was better then the Cheesecake Factory! Now I know!
Overall it was a great experience. We enjoyed the nice breeze and the sunshine. I heard they close for the summer, which I understand since there is NO indoor seating that I saw.
what a great surprise!.
Great atmosphere, great food and beautiful scenery. A great way to spend an afternoon when the weather is right. I bring out-of-town guests for lunch and they can't believe there's a lush, grassy farm in the middle of the desert.
Pack up the kids, your best friend, your sweetheart or your mom and come for an utterly relaxing lunch in the great outdoors.. In Short The Farm Kitchen is a breath of fresh air and a little hit of rural R&R. You'll know it the instant you see the white picket fence at the entrance and the picnic tables underneath the leafy grove of pecan trees. The restaurant is a converted cottage that sits on the grounds of a small working farm, dedicated to growing and supplying organic produce for some of the city's finest restaurants. The menu menu includes homemade soups, salads and hearty sandwiches and fresh baked goods.

Visited The Farm two weeks consecutively, and plan to visit weekly-it shuts down for the summer at month's end. Had the southwest chicken, grilled flank steak, and chicken pecan sandwiches-all great, especially the first two. Beautfiul, tranquil settings sends stressors away, albeit temporarily. Can't wait to try other two restaurants. Glad to have found this gem!
