I have found the perfect place to escape from the city and actually, it’s not that far from the city. In fact, it’s pretty much right in the center of things, only it certainly doesn’t seem like it. If you feel the need to “get back to nature,” then The Farm is the place to go. We decided to check it out for Easter Brunch and loved it.

The food was delicious and, of course, about as fresh as you can get considering much of it is  grown on property. They served up everything from eggs and waffles to fruit and pasta. And don’t even get me started on the desserts – yum!

Since we were a bit stuffed after brunch, we decided to roam the grounds for a little excercise. Plus it was just too gorgeous of a day not to spend as much time as possible outside. During our stroll, we stumbled upon “The Cottage,” a fabulous little artist studio with local jewelry, soaps, note cards and more. Well, I was in heaven. Eating and shopping happen to be two of my favorite things and to be able to do them both in one spot is a bonus.

You should check out The Farm. I don’t think  you’ll be disappointed.
