Sampling from our Weekly Menus

Following are a few of the salads and soups we offered during our seven-week trial run. We look forward to serving you again with these and new menu items in the fall!

All soups and salads are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan, and the soups are soy-free. 

Weekly Salad

  • Beans and Greens with Caramelized Dressing This salad is heavy on greens and beans topped with a dressing made from honey, caramelized onions, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, rice vinegar and smoked paprika.

  • Dill & Dijon Potato Salad: A tangy and vibrant twist on a classic potato salad.

  • Citrus Carrot Slaw with Raisins and Toasted Walnuts: This colorful combination of vegetables and tangy flavor will delight your tastebuds and have you coming back for more.

  • Quinoa Salad with Tamari-Roasted Sunflower Seeds: A protein-packed mix of grains, beans and greens, tossed together with fruit, herbs and a sweet vinaigrette, topped with sweet, umami sunflower seeds—the epitome of a leveled-up salad. 

Daily Soup

Our small-batch soups are made from scratch daily with recipes crafted and tested by our farm staff. Enjoy all 16 ounces served with bread from Terranetti's Italian Bakery.

  • Mama Cher’s Tomato Bisque Launch into the week with our classic tomato soup!
  • Hearty Vegetable Goulash A deeply satisfying soup that highlights the many root crops grown at the farm, with hints of paprika and other warming spices.
  • Creamy Cauliflower Puree Treat yourself to a cupful of farm cauliflower pureed into a smooth blend with potatoes, herbs and spices.
  • Carrot Ginger Potage Made with the farm’s favorite root crop (carrots!), this soup is a true crowd pleaser.
