Top 3 Cheesy Items from the Farmhouse!

In case you’ve been in hibernation, hiding away from this cold weather, Saturday is National Cheese Lovers Day! And if there’s anything we love here at Fair Oaks Farms, it’s cheese! You can taste that love when you bite into any of our award-winning cheeses, and one of the best ways to try our cheeses is at the Farmhouse Restaurant! Not only is our menu packed with meat options that come straight from our farms, but there are plenty of dishes that showcase our creamy, perfected cheeses as well! Below we’ve chosen the top 3 cheesiest items you MUST try the next time you make a stop at the Farmhouse!

Fair Oaks Farms’ Cheese Curds

Our grilled cheese is almost famous, but our cheese curds have also made a name for themselves in Northwest Indiana. They’re the perfect starter — but we wouldn’t judge if you wanted to make a meal out of them! Fair Oaks Farms’ cheddar cheese curds are battered and deep-fried to perfection until they’re crunchy on the outside and gooey in the middle. Curds are piled high in a small basket, then sprinkled with parmesan cheese. These curds are terrific on their own, but we serve them with jalapeño ranch and marinara just in case you want a flavorful touch. Share them with your table or keep them to yourself, either way, you’ll be happy you indulged in one of our best recipes!

Ribeye Burger

It’s the most popular burger on our menu, leading the pack with a half-pound of dry aged ribeye, chipotle mayo, baby arugula, tomato, and Fair Oaks Farms Havarti Pepper cheese. It’s hard to pick a frontrunner-ingredient that takes the sandwich over the top, but many claim it to be the Havarti Pepper cheese. The smooth taste of beef mixes perfectly with the spicy tang of chipotle mayo and Havarti Pepper cheese, giving it the ideal level of heat for anyone who desires a bit of a punch on their burger. Havarti, in general, is the most popular cheese to use on burgers because of how perfectly it melts. Adding the kick of the pepper only heightens this burger’s flavor profile, making it one of the most popular cheesy items on our menu.

Ultimate Grilled Cheese

It wasn’t until this fall that the Farmhouse decided to try their hand at the best grilled cheese. Our Cowfé has always held it down with the simple classics, but the Farmhouse took it to the next level when they premiered the Ultimate Grilled Cheese this fall. It’s made up of buttery Texas Toast, bacon, tomato, pesto aioli, and three different kinds of Fair Oaks Farms cheeses: our award-winning Muenster, fan-favorite Cheddar, and the spicy Havarti Pepper. Three types of cheese team up to take this grilled cheese to the top, adding a mix of smooth, sharp, and spicy flavors to compliment the salt of the bacon, juiciness of the tomato, and fresh taste of the pesto aioli. All the ingredients come together to form the apex comfort food, the grilled cheese of our dreams.

Hungry? Eat at Our House

Fair Oaks Farms opened our first family-style restaurant in July of 2014. Many people have already heard about it and some have not, but soon will. This beautiful restaurant is simply hard to miss. You can see it standing stoically from I65 and can smell the aroma of food from the parking lots throughout the campus.

Why should you try The Farmhouse Restaurant? Did you know that most of the food is grown right here on our farms? The food that is not grown on our farms is harvested locally…and we work with some of the best local partners around! You may even know some of them.

You step into this gorgeous restaurant and you’re in complete “wow”. The high ceilings, the rustic flair, the warmth of the colors and the enormous fireplace bring charm to this great new addition to Northwest IN.

The happy and welcoming staff will lead the way to your seat. Note; their adorable farm style uniforms. If you’re of age, choose to sit in the pub because you will get to see Craig if you’re dining throughout the day and he is a wonderful conversationalist. He always has a smile on his face and makes you feel at home. I noticed while I was eating my delicious Classic Burger (with Fair Oaks Farms Mild Cheddar) that he was telling some travelers about how much he loves the Fair Oaks Farms products, especially the chocolate FairLife milk. He even let them sample some. The customers absolutely loved sharing the experience with Craig and with each other and immediately asked where they could purchase some. (Of course, everything is available next door in our Market & Bakery). That’s the kind of atmosphere you’ll find at The Farmhouse. Everyone there makes you feel like part of the family.

If the food isn’t enough to get you to come back for more, you need to try one of the signature drinks. I tried the Lemonade B and it was just amazing! It was refreshing, delicious and with just the right amount of tang to it. There are several signature drinks to try from and their bartenders are all fully trained to give you the best experience possible.

If you have time, you HAVE to check out the unique bathrooms. I know, I’m talking about the BATHROOMS! But they are absolutely adorable. Each one is unique in its own way. And there have been several accounts where they have become conversation starters at the tables in the dining rooms.

To top off your experience (and if you have a warm coat during these colder months) walk around the wrap-around porch to the backside of the restaurant. There you will see this beautiful landscaping complete with a custom waterfall. I can picture some lucky couple getting married right there and what a beautiful picture opportunity.
