Brunch on the Farm

Swallowtail Farm and FARE: eat differently have joined forces to bring you Brunch on the Farm.

You will dine at two large community tables in Swallowtail Farm's enclosed dining space. The brunch includes three courses, interaction with the chef and farmer, curated playlist, farm tour, and opportunity to purchase Swallowtail Farm eggs, greens and fruit syrups and Rust Belt Roastery coffee.
