The restaurant not only provides delicious meals, but also gives back to community members who need it most.
In response to COVID-19, many restaurants are now offering online ordering and contactless pickup and delivery. Of the various takeout options, one of my favorites so far has been farm house.
For many people, there can be a fear of leaving your home during shelter-in-place. Even if it’s just to run errands or take a walk with your family, many still worry about the possibility of infection. However, Farm House seems to take every precaution when it comes to packing and delivering orders.
They claim that workers wear gloves at all times and that these gloves are replaced between the creation of each order. Customers are not allowed to wait inside or around the restaurant doors. Instead, they are asked to contact a phone number when they arrive and stay in their car. In order to maintain a safe distance, customers are asked to collect their meal from the table outside once they have received a text message that it is ready.
When I went to pick up my order, everything I saw was consistent with those claims, and never, at any time, was I within six feet of another person.
In addition to their new procedures, Farm House goes even further to support the needs of its customers. In an effort to give back to the community, Farm House now offers its customers the option to donate a meal to those in need.
Frontline workers at Sequoia Hospital have rightly been a popular recipient of many of these gifts. However, Farm House has also recently partnered with San Mateo County Villages to provide meals to seniors in our community who do not have access to transportation.
These simple but selfless acts are a great example of the attitude we all need to have right now.
But the restaurant promotes much more than its services within the community. Their food is that of a typical American kitchen; dishes such as burgers, salads, fish and assorted pasta dishes fill the menu. And, for adults who need a little more than just a positive mindset to get through the hardships of quarantine, Farm House is now offering discounted prices on all wines.
So if you’re feeling generous, or even just hungry for a good meal, head over to Farm House and support a local business.
