It’s summer and the Brick Farm Group is ready to bring you the best our region has to offer.
Delicious summer dining and catering starts with our farm, Double Brook Farm in Hopewell. We raise sheep, pigs, chickens, turkeys, cattle, goats, and duck on pasture. The sheep, cattle, and goats are moved daily to fresh grass, and the poultry and pigs are fed a non-GMO, locally grown grain blend to supplement their foraged diet. Our vegetable operation resides on 37 acres of rolling farmland at the base of the Sourlands.
Summer in New Jersey means an abundance of local produce! The Brick Farm Market has fresh produce on display outside every weekend and daily in the market. Chef Chase prepares all this seasonal goodness for the Taste Cafe menu for breakfast, lunch, and Friday BBQ dinners.
In addition to produce, the market has everything you need for healthy and delicious dining: meats from our artisanal butcher, cheeses from all over the world, daily house baked breads and pastries, barista crafted coffee drinks, a juice and smoothie bar, made-to-order bone broth, prepared foods for eat in or take out, and a full service catering menu. And don’t overlook the house-made jellies, sauces, and spices on the shelves, along with various sundries needed to complete your meal and adorn your kitchen.
The Brick Farm Tavern shines this summer with endless opportunities to celebrate local food, family, and friends. The patio is in full swing with a fantastic view of the fields and Hopewell sunsets. The tavern menus are changed regularly to please the happy hour crowd as well as tastes of those who join us for fine dining. To complement the fare, Patrick and his crew behind the bar have an ever-changing selection of house-made seasonal cocktails, wine pairings and rotating beer on tap to recommend. Join us for cocktails, dinner, happy hour or just an hour or two by the bonfire on Friday nights (weather permitting).
Over in Ringoes, the Red Barn Milk Company has transitioned to summer hours and is open for your shake shack cravings seven days a week. And there is something for everyone at Red Barn: ice cream, burgers, ribs, shakes, soft serve, dogs, brats, chocolate, and more.
The meat comes from Double Brook Farm, the baked goods from Brick Farm Market and the dairy from Hun-Val Dairy Farm in Ringoes. Red Barn is situated on the same campus as Pine Creek Mini Golf and Pine Creek Liquors — perfect additions to a meal enjoyed at Red Barn. Look for our farmer’s markets on the weekends next to Red Barn as well as rotating special events such as the car show and couples’ nights.
And finally, summer is a great time to cater an event for any type of gathering. We at Brick Farm Group Catering pride ourselves on creating the perfect experience for your guests.
Whether it is a backyard BBQ, milestone birthday, corporate event, or intimate wedding, let us help you deliver exceptional food for your next party.
