On our drive to Red Feather Lakes we stopped in Fort Collins at The Farmhouse at Jessup Farm. Jessup Farm is an artisan village filled with small and locally owned stores, coffee shops, restaurants and of course a brewery...if not it wouldn't be Colorado!
Fort Collins, has been having a revival and is known as smaller Boulder based on their good mix of restaurants and retail. When I read about Jessup Farm I knew we had to make a pit stop here and eat lunch at The Farmhouse.
The restaurant is situated in 133 year-old building, with exposed brick walls, distressed wood and comfy seating areas. As my Danish hubby would say it was "hyggeligt" a Danish word for cozy and inviting. The restaurant has it's own chicken coop and locally source all their produce and meats.
The menu is what I would call upscale country american fare. Miles and I shared a variety of dishes since we couldn't decide on only one. We shared the daily doughnut (amazing!), the lamb sausage and potatoes, huevos rancheros skillet and pumpkin pancakes. We are definitely coming back to this restaurant and since their menu changes seasonally its the perfect excuse for the 40 minute drive from Denver.
After our delicious and hearty brunch we headed out to stroll through the stores at Jessup Farm. This place was beautifully made and it has the small town charm. We stopped at The Knapsack Store were they have a good mix of home decor and quirky accessories. Needless to say I wanted to buy a ton of stuff in here! I definitely have a weakness for for nick-nacks.
