One of the highlights of the Mom Blogger weekend in Cape May was getting to see Beach Plum Farm. Beach Plum Farm is owned by the Cape Resort group and provides their Cape May restaurants with fresh produce. Love. Love. LOVE. I am such a Localvore, this commitment to the Farm-to-Table concept just won me over completely. I so admire their commitment to this – I wish more restaurants were! So, instead of a wordless wednesday, here are a few of my favorite pictures of the weekend.
Planted with summer crops like blueberries, asparagus, tomatoes and strawberries, along with a large perennial herb garden, the certified organic farm already supplies Cape Resorts Group’s restaurants with close to their 50% of seasonal produce. The Ebbitt Room’s chef, Lucas Manteca, looks forward to expanding with chickens and pigs next year.
Due to guests’ enthusiasm for the farm, organized bike tours are offered twice weekly in addition to the picnics, which hotel guests can reserve through the concierge for groups of six or more.
Speaking of lunch… this meal… this meal… (Hang on. Let me close my eyes and imagine I’m back there….) One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. In my top 10 for sure. Chef Lucas turned some fresh produce from the farm into a feast.
Disclosure: This trip was sponsored by Cape Resort group and The Motherhood. I was provided with meals, accommodations and a spa treatment in order to appreciate the Congress Hall experience. All opinions are my own.
