Latest Farm Tavern news and reviews

The Farm Tavern out Moorland Rd. was far friendlier than we expected. The local evening news was all bad that day, and hard to ignore on the big screen TVs, but the bartender-cook was practically psychic (or at least observant) and overheard us wondering aloud about the Farm Burger and Tractor Tires. Turns out the tires are onion rings, served here fried in dark oil long enough to break down the onion slices and get them sweet and smooshy. The Farm Burger is like this.

Kate's burger rating guide:

  • Bun: toasted and buttered light wheat.
  • Meat: meh.
  • Bun/meat ratio: modest.
  • Cheese: perfectly melted American and probably-processed Swiss.
  • Misc.: Excellent tomato, a game-changer in our book. Nice thin fried onions. About a 7 of 10 overall.

JM's ham & cheese on white was also available on a bun, if desired.  The sandwich was slight but tasty in an off-the-back-of-the-semi kind of way.  Nobody's beating down the door for this sandwich, but it is fine. Indeed, this trusim holds for most of Farm Tavern.
