Drive along a bumpy sand road beyond San Jose del Cabo, and you reach Flora Farm (also known as Flora Farms).
In the heart of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Flora’s is a 25-acre organic farm growing all sorts of flowers, veggies and herbs.
Floras Field Kitchen:
Flora’s also has a field kitchen and restaurant.
But this is no ordinary restaurant.
The outstanding Flora Farms restaurant has been named one of the “world’s 10 best table-to-farm dining experiences” (a purposeful take on the term “farm-to-table”).
Local and organic at Flora Farms restaurant:
Bakers make breads fresh each day.
Staff craft their own sausages and smoke their own meats (from animals raised organically).
And a wood-burning oven turns out Neapolitan-style pizzas.
Flora Farms menu
The menu is seasonal at Flora’s field kitchen and depends on what’s fresh.
Perhaps pasta quills in cream with peas, truffle butter and prosciutto. Or lemon chicken cutlets with a herb mustard spatzle. Or the fresh catch-of-the-day with a thyme-infused fish broth and farm vegetables.
If you’re cravin’ pizza, you can choose from 15 types of Neopolitan-style pizza. Think farm bacon with egg and fennel sausage and mozzarella.
Cocktails are imaginative and delicious!
How to visit Flora Farm
The best way to experience Flora Farms is to join a free walking farm tour.
Follow that with a long scrumptious organic lunch while gazing out at tall sunflowers.
We’re still dreaming of our meal of wild hibiscus margaritas (and carrot-orange “farmaritas”), homemade chicken sausage pasta and the most flavorful heirloom tomato salad we’ve ever tasted.
After lunch, poke about the little art gallery on the grounds.
Then check out the farm store. Maybe pick up some home-made fruit syrup, artisan salt or lavender body lotion?
For more of that California Napa Valley or Sonoma feeling, you can even stay overnight in one of the unique hand-crafted culinary cottages!
