The Beach Plum Farm in Cape May.
BBeginning as a humble farm stand in 2008, Beach Plum Farm has grown to produce over 100 kinds of fruits and vegetables as well as chickens, turkeys, eggs and Berkshire hogs. The farm provides produce and meats to local Cape May restaurants, including the Ebbitt Room, the Blue Pig Tavern, the Rusty Nail, the Boiler Room, Louisa’s Café and more. This 62-acre farm is who you have to thank for much of the fresh produce served within Cape May. But you don’t have to enjoy the fruits of its labor at other restaurants — its own farm-to-table summer suppers have become favorites for the local foodie scene. Beach Plum Farm offers family-style meals on Wednesdays, flame-cooked seafood feasts on Friday and barbeques on Sundays. The suppers are decidedly pricey (both the Wednesday and Friday nights are more than $100 a person), so for those looking for a cheaper (but still delicious) alternative, hit up the Beach Plum Farm Kitchen where you can enjoy a la carte breakfast and food items. When you visit, be sure to bring your bike too — Beach Plum offers self guided tours of the farm which you can conduct via bicycle. You can find Beach Plum Farm at 140 Stevens St. in West Cape May.
