River Valley Ranch—yes, the mushroom vendor you see at farmers’ markets—opened this adorable shop and café, where you can sample cheesy dips, local jams, and a veritable garden of pickled veggies before settling in for a fungus fest of beer-battered shrooms ($6) followed by portobello “Italian beef” ($8) on a mushroom baguette.

Carnivores have rotating choices: meaty omelets ($8), hot ham on wheat slathered with crabapple mustard and pressed till crisp ($8), or poutine laced with grass-fed beef in red wine sauce and capped with a poached egg ($10). Stay for a few refills of Passion House coffee ($2.49) until you’ve made enough room for a Hafs Road Orchard or Nichols Farm apple fritter or two (five for $4).

On your way out, you can buy all the fresh ingredients to cook the same dishes at home. Either way, this farm gets pretty darn close to your table.
