In big bold letters the menu states: “Alberta Food Everyday – We love our suppliers.”
Owned by Calgary’s cheese maven, Janice Beaton, who also operates Janice Beaton Fine Cheese, one of the finest cheese shops anywhere in the nation, FARM is a casual, cozy place with a harvest table for gathering your friends or the bar where you get to watch the cooks work their magic. Great cheeses along with house-made as well as local charcuterie (ex. – Old Country Sausage) are a mainstay on the menu.
FARM celebrates community, honest dining, and the farmers, growers, producers, foods and animals that grace the Prairies all the while responding to the growing demand for more natural, locally-sourced foods. Guests can dine on the likes of braised spring lamb shoulder on a bed of tomato and mint-laced quinoa, with a cucumber-yoghurt crème fraîche or Pura Vida rib eye with Poplar Bluff potatoes, chimichurri and arugula. There are great salads and Janice’s signature Mac & Cheese, bubbling in its own casserole with a side of pickles.
Food Day Canada 2012
“Food Day Canada , on Saturday August 4th, is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and above all, our home cooks. You can head to one of the enthusiastic Food Day Canada restaurants or shops, like FARM or JBFC, or you can plan your own party! Absolutely anywhere! Row to a distant shore to light a campfire…barbecue some fish…sweep off the deck for a family supper…dig a roasting pit…fire up the grill…and use only Canadian ingredients to create a feast or a simple dinner that honours our extraordinary culinary history.
To help you create your fabulous celebration, JBFC is offering 10% off all our
Canadian cheeses and Canadian products on Saturday August 4th.” -Executive Chef Pete Goldberg, along with Kelsey and Adam of FARM.
