Please note that menus for Farms & Fields are tentative; when working with local and seasonal foods straight from our garden and/or from nearby farms, availability varies. In order to bring you the most local and sustainable items possible, we may have to make slight substitutions from the seasonal menu we have originally planned. Being flexible with what nature provides us is a necessary part of committing to seasonal eating. Thank you for your understanding and support for sustainable foods

  1. The cream of broccoli soup was so good! I’m really glad that it was made with natural vegetable base instead of chicken stock!

    • Hi Nikki,

      Yesterday was a fluke with the menu as the person that regularly updates the menu was out of the office and not able to update the menu. So sorry for the inconvenience. We’ll work to put a plan in place in case of this situation in the future.


  2. I’m interested in learning the recipe for a salmon pasta I had at Farms and Fields in the fall 2014. It was one of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had I would love to be able to make it myself. Thank you!

    • Katherine,
      Thanks so much for the comment. I will have to do some searching in our recipe files to see if I can pull that one up for you. I’ll be in touch by email!

  3. Absolutely love this place! Always brightens my day🙂 The sweet potatoes are absolutely delicious I always look forward to roasted veggies–like brussels sprouts and kale!

  4. I loved the lentil dal I had today for dinner! It was delicious. I hope in the future, more bean and lentil dishes will be served!

  5. Is it possible to upload the menu for the day before 11 am? I keep making trips to Owens to find out what the menu is just to leave and go somewhere else because I don’t prefer what’s on the menu for that day. The inconvenience could be avoided if the blog was updated sooner.

    • I do apologize for the delay. Normally we will have the menus up before 10:00am. I will make a more concerted effort to get these menus in the system even earlier to accommodate people that would like to see them earlier. We are in the process of hiring a new sustainability coordinator for our department and these issues will be resolved shortly.
