When Mr. Fix-it was here visiting, we managed to escape for a quiet lunch for just the two of us! Since we had to be on the South Central side of Phoenix anyway to pick up Dottie Dog after her surgery, I knew just the place to spend a few peaceful hours, The Farm at South Mountain.
Situated only eight minutes from downtown Phoenix, you might drive right past it, not even knowing it is there! This unexpected retreat is a twelve acre jewel hidden in the middle of a somewhat industrial area. For GPS directions type in the address below:
6106 S. 32nd Street Phoenix, AZ 85042
(just south of Southern on the west side of 32nd Street)
"The Farm Kitchen" features an idyllic outside eating area where the food served includes soups, sandwiches and home baked goodies.
It is amazingly quiet being so close to the downtown area, except for the birds looking for a hand-out! The sound is melodious and actually soothing. Well I thought that....but Mr. Fix-it has an aversion to birds getting too close. Don't get me wrong, they don't come that close but they let you know they are there!
After lunch we strolled around 'The Farm'.
Organically grown salad greens.
Home grown chickens too!
Herbs and blooming flowers for sale.
"The Farm at South Mountain" is a wonderful place for family reunions, picnics, weddings and is dog and kid friendly. There is so much more to do and see here. Stay tuned for my next post which will feature pictures taken at the Artist's Studio Cottage on "The Farm".
