Indulge in Mouth-Watering Food

The farm’s restaurant doesn’t just serve food; it serves experiences. Take the seasonal peach pizza, for instance: the peach slices are so ripe, that they practically melt in your mouth.

You can check their full menu here. And for the kids? They offer items like BBQ plates and chicken nuggets.

Sip on Craft Cocktails and More

The drink menu at Jacob’s Farm is not your average lineup of beverages.

Craft cocktails take center stage, featuring imaginative concoctions like “Blueberry Lavender Lemonade,” a delightful mix of Mammoth Vodka, lemon, blueberry-infused honey, and lavender syrup.

Let the Kids Run Wild

Literally. The Kids Zone playground isn’t just a swing set.

Multiple play sets, a tire mountain, monkey bars, and balance beams—all shaded by large trees for those hot summer days are waiting for kids to climb on.
