Welcome to the true season at the GTF Farmstand. We are now as open as we ever get with lunch service Tuesday through Friday from 11-2 and Saturday 9-2, as well as dinner service on Thursday and Friday nights starting at 5:30 p.m. There are new faces to see and new foods to try. The biggest evolution this year is pizza bianco: white sauce based pizza. The true barometer is the staff hunger, and the bianco pies are receiving a big thumbs up!
