Farm Barn Café
Duke Farms is committed to operating an on-site café that features high-quality food to all visitors. All year round, our café works with local farmers to incorporate their crops into many of our menu options. The Farm Barn Café follows the mission of Duke Farms by featuring a number of ingredients that are both organic and/or locally sourced. The café is also a 4 Star Certified Green Restaurant®. This designation is awarded to restaurants who take steps to limit their impact on the environment.
Farm to Table Market
The Farm to Table Market at Duke Farms is a testament of our commitment to promoting our mission to be a model of environmental stewardship and to inspire visitors to become informed stewards of the Land. The market demonstrates land stewardship by practicing sustainable growing practices and providing our communities with quality, nutritious food which promotes small family farming while protecting our valuable agricultural lands. It began in 2014 by promoting our on-site incubator farmers and a few products grown by local farms in the area. Today the market features several vendors offering a variety of local produce, meats, cheeses, crafts and wine.
