The Farmhouse Is Opening in Needham
A new farm-to-table restaurant in Needham is making renovations to the space in which it will reside, and it is using a popular funding platform to help with the improvements.
According to its Kickstarter page, The Farmhouse on Great Plain Avenue is asking for pledges through March 1 to help them raise money to "add some architectural finishing touches" to the restaurant. The couple behind the dining spot are using reclaimed wood from barns that are being taken down and farm houses that are in disrepair, with the wood being used for paneling as well as a "fourteen seat community farmer's table." The couple says that they are 85% finished with construction and renovations.
[February 27 update: A Facebook post from the restaurant indicates that The Farmhouse will be opening this Friday (March 1).]
[March 1 update: The restaurant has confirmed (via Facebook) that it will indeed be opening today.]
The space that The Farmhouse is moving into had been home to Midtown Smokehouse and Grill and before that, Village Fish. The address is 970 Great Plain Avenue, Needham, MA, 02492.
