We found this great eatery on our way through southern Colorado. It offers unique decor and menu options, and it's so much better than typical fast food spots. We ordered some tasty sandwiches, which they gladly personalized for our dietary needs. We loved the original art on the walls and enjoyed every moment we spent in this memorable restaurant.

Full disclosure, I am a local and I eat and drink at the Farm a lot. There is so much to like here. First is the farm to table aspect.

Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely place and there's some good food to be had here but it's gotten so predictable; it's as if this type of eatery is what real people want. It isn't. The people are lovely, the atmosphere doesn't lend itself to being particularly anything but a dash-in for lunch and not much else. Figure... More

A gem of a restaurant in a small town. Cortez is lucky to have such a great and lively restaurant in its mix! Absolutely the best! We had 3 meals there in 2 days! Try the lamb meatballs and the beet salad!

I usually stop here to get the Chicken Sandwich with Fries because it is one of the best menu items in Cortez. I've tried some of the other menu items or daily specials and they just don't come up to par with the chicken sandwich.

Ate here for lunch a few times and it was always super good, this place buys as much local produce as they can and all their food is homemade, I would recommend this place to anyone for a good lunch.

Sonya and her team are just wonderful. We had a salad and a turkey pita. Filling and tasty with good service. We'll be back.
