Description: At the Farmstand, we highlight fresh exquisite produce at its absolute best. The care that goes into our produce is the same care that goes into producing our menu. We prepare our menus and dishes with deep respect for the European tradition of peasant cuisine. We work with our hands. We make our own pasta. We bake our own bread. We make pates, mousses, terrines, hams, and sausages. Some items will be familiar and some will be an adventure. All dishes will be crafted thoughtfully with respect to the land and local businesses.

“Made this omnivore happy”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Because the name may imply it is heavy on vegetarian food, I can assure you it has a well-balanced menu. But, when you are in the land of fresh-from-the-garden produce, even this meat-eater had a hard time resisting the vegetable choices.

This place is quite a drive from Corvallis, but so unique, it was worth it. We visited on a warm summer day and sat in the covered veranda area out front. They have a great wood-burning pizza oven that produced some of the best looking pies I've seen this side of Naples. My husband ordered the margarita and loved its slightly charred, crisp, but airy crust and a fresh-squeezed lemonade.

I started with the soup of the day, a light and flavorful mushroom bisque served with a slice of toasted artisan bread. Earthy and delicious. But, I wanted something other than pizza from that great oven. At the top of their daily menu, they list all the in-season produce, and even though it wasn't on the menu, I asked if they could roast some of those veggies for my second course. No problem. I am so glad I asked. I was served this delightful blend of tiny whole carrots, zucchini, red peppers, marble-sized potatoes, and tomatoes in a lightly seasoned broth, drizzled with fresh pesto. So, so well prepared and tasty.
After dining, we munched on two of their giant cookies- chocolate chip and molasses while meandering through the flower garden with, among many other things, had 12 foot high sunflowers. Just a nice relaxing outing and a great place to take guests for a special experience.

“Good but small portions”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Price is a little high for the child like portions. Good wholesome food and service is excellent. Mostly a place fir women to sit and socialize over a very lite lunch. Not really a mans faire. Fresh and delicious, just dont be real hungry to eat.

“Good farm food”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Many times in recent years, we have dined at Gather Together Farm in Philomath OR. For a while, the good dining was a local secret, but knowledge of GTF has now spread to Salem OR and Portland OR. One can no long just "drop in" for lunch; one must make reservations for all meals except the Saturday brunch (unless you are a party of six).

The menu varies from week to week, but main dishes are complemented by produce grown on the farm itself. Oven-fired pizzas are a highlight and very filling. One might want to share one pizza and one dinner salad. Local wines, beer and ale are available. We enjoy evening meals when a "prix fixe" is available when you choose three items. Mismatched dishes and silver seem very appropriate whether you dine on the front porch or inside where farm-fresh produce, a few frozen meat items, and other local food products are available. A pastry counter invites you to take home potato doughnuts, oatmeal cookies or sweet galettes.

If you try it once, you'll want to try it again. Bon appetit.
