Farmer and Fork one line logo

Farmer and the Fork, located at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, serves a menu of locally-sourced, healthy, delicious and prepared-to-order meals in a fine-casual setting. The always evolving menu works on a six-season schedule, allowing chefs to use the freshest produce as it comes into season and utilize partnerships with local farms. Some of the menu features are grain bowls, soups, sandwiches, and baked goods. Beer and wine are also served daily, with offerings from local breweries, as well as standard favorites. Patrons can eat inside at the café, on the patio overlooking the Wachusett Reservoir or have picnic meals packed to enjoy anywhere on the grounds.

We use several local farms and suppliers including Flats Mentor Farm (Lancaster, MA), Myers Produce (Hadley, MA), Pioneer Valley Growers Association (Deerfield, MA), Carlson Orchard (Harvard, MA), Smith’s Country Cheese (Winchendon, MA), Wards Berry Farm (Sharon, MA), Eva’s Garden (Dartmouth, MA), Little Leaf Farms (Devens, MA), Hydroponics in the old Fort Devens, Rhode Island Mushroom Company (Kingston, RI), North Country (Claremont, NH), Backyard Farms (Madison, ME), Lioni Latticini Inc. (Union, NJ), Hepworth Farms (Milton, NY), Ronnybrook Dairy Farm (Pine Planes, NY)

FALL SPECIAL:  Enjoy our "Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar" every weekend. First weekend of every month we will have a rotating savory and sweet crepe special.
