Swank Farm’s series of “Farm Market” brunches continues Sunday with U-pick strawberries and live music, all in Loxahatchee Groves’ rural setting.
And like some of the more popular brunches, it will be a casual affair. In this one, however, you purchase a ticket for the dish of your choice.
Brunch ticket prices range from the following:
- Free to enter, no brunch
- $25 for the Market Brunch, which includes admission, table seating, one gourmet brunch dish, and access to the farmer’s market and live entertainment
- $45 for the Moet Brunch, which includes admission, parking for one vehicle, table seating, one Moet Mini Champagne, one gourmet brunch dish, and access to the farmer’s market and live entertainment
- $195 for the VIP Brunch for 2, which includes admission for two adults, parking for one vehicle, VIP stage seating, one bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label to share, two cocktails per person, unlimited gourmet brunch, and access to the farmer’s market and live entertainment
There will be brunch cocktails, local beer and music, plus a farm mini-market offering locally grown and crafted goods, says Swank.
During harvest season, when she and farmer husband Darrin Swank are not running the Loxahatchee Groves boutique produce farm, they are hosting rural-chic “Swank Table” farm dinners and other special events in their soaring barn. Now, they’ll host the farm market brunch on those Sundays when there’s no Swank Table feast.
Jodi Swank expects between 10 and 15 vendors will sell their goods at the market.
Cooking at the farm will be chefs from the Wellington Hospitality Group, a special events company. They will be creating dishes with some of the ingredients grown on the farm and offered at Sunday’s mini-market.
On the menu: hearty breakfast platters and sandwiches, burritos, Belgium waffles, a NY Strip steak sandwich, and a special, loaded farm salad.
Although no advance purchase is required, the hospitality group is selling advance food and drink tickets to the brunch here.
Reservations are not needed for this family-friendly event.
“You can bring the kids,” says Jodi Swank, whose dinner events are 21-and-older affairs. “You can have brunch, or you can skip it and just shop the market. It’s a nice morning on the farm.”
