Farmstead – St. Helena, CA

29 Oct

After a beautiful morning at Conn Creek Winery, mixing my own bottle of wine (the fantastic KPizzle), and tasting about 19 different wines straight from the barrel, my party was in dire need of food. I planned ahead (something I never do) and had reservations for us at Farmstead. This was a recommendation of a girl I work with and as soon as I got there I thought, thank God I’m no longer Vegan…


I started out really healthy with the kale salad. Note to self, you never need an entire bowl of kale, no matter how much you like it. Word to the wise, share a salad if you’re getting an entree. The kale had a very nice, light lemon dressing and shaved parmesean. It was delicious, but too much food knowing the massive pulled pork sandwich that was coming next.


I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is the best pulled pork I can remember having. Maybe it was that I was so hungry, maybe it was a slight bit of alcohol consumption, but I could have licked my plate I enjoyed it so much. The sandwich also came with a side of potato salad, which I liked, but I’m not a big mayo fan so the mayo-to-potato ratio was a bit high for my liking, but good nonetheless. Farmstead was the perfect stop on our day-long wine drinking extravaganza.
