Sure, lots of restaurants claim their food is fresh, but what could be fresher than enjoying farm-to-table cuisine while you’re still at the farm?
You can’t get more “farm-to-table” than at Buckingham Farms, a hydroponic farm that covers more than 50 acres in Fort Myers, where you’ll find both a charming country store and restaurant where almost every bite is grown on-site.
In the store, you’ll find farm-fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, eggs, local honey, homemade jams, grass-fed beef and bison, and more.
The farm’s greatest attraction, though, is the on-site restaurant where everything is made from scratch. Guests can dine inside in a charming rustic setting or outside at picnic tables surrounded by the fresh air and the scenic backdrop of the farm.
The kitchen serves midweek lunches, Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They are also open for Friday dinners from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday breakfasts from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. (or until they run out of food).
The menu is generally classic American favorites made with the freshest foods available according to the season. They also make incredible cakes, pies and baked goods from scratch.
Ready to give the food at Buckingham Farms a try? Andy highly recommends it!
