the breakfast club

Whether you want a Sunday drive or a hangover helper, a quick one hour trip from Seattle will land you at Farm Kitchen, an 18-acre organic farm and lovely old fashioned farm style building for the Puget Sound’s very best brekky. On the first Saturday of every month, 300-400 morning meal lovin’ folks gather for farm-made Brioche French Toast stuffed with Citrus Cream Cheese, Rosemary Apple Sausage (made on site) and co-owner Hollis Fay’s Original 8-Grain Pullapart – a carb-o-riffic delight that was created on Bainbridge Island in the 1980’s. Customers have even gone so far to write poems singing this particular baked good’s praises. Apples are sourced onsite or from other local organic farms, ditto for the herbs and greens. In 2009, potatoes will be supplied by Leap Frog Farm and Laughing Crow Farm, and organic flowers courtesy of Butler Green Farms and Leap Frog Farm. During the summer months, Farm Kitchen also offers outdoor seating on the Lavender Lawn looking out at the Butler Green Farm’s beautiful dahlias and other flowers. They also offer cooking classes and lodging for those who want to make a mini-getaway of their Poulsbo adventure.

Wanna Try?
Farm Kitchen, 24309 PT Gamble Road NE, Poulsbo; (360-297-6615)
First Saturday of each month (year-round), 8 a.m. – noon, no reservations needed. Featured breakfast costs $9.75, side dishes cost $3-5.

Small Changes Add Up
If 10,000 Seattleites rode their bike to Poulsbo via the ferry versus driving, it would keep the weight of 1072 pigs primed for bacon making out of the landfill.
