DINING ROOM CLOSING AT FARM GIRLS PUB & GRUB
ALLIANCE - Farm Girls Pub & Grub will serve up its last supper on Saturday, July 26, 2014. An oasis of great taste, fun and fresh local food, Farm Girls will close its dining room at 253 East Main Street after two years.
Restaurant owner Abbe Turner realizes she must seek greener pastures which promise better harvests with other entrepreneurial opportunities.“We worked really hard, but regretfully, we cannot continue to keep the dining room open,” she said. “Our other business entities have proven to be too demanding. We appreciate the redevelopment efforts taking place in downtown Alliance. But we will have to leave it to someone else to carry it forward.”
Focused on sourcing fresh, local food from a 30-mile radius of Farm Girls, Abbe has worked with more than a dozen trusted northeast Ohio artisan farmers from throughout Wayne, Stark, Portage, Geauga, Trumbull and Mahoning counties. Their farm-fresh ingredients have been used to create the mouthwatering entrees Chef Josh Mobley has created at the restaurant each weekend according to what’s been in season and freshly available. Nightly specials could range from meatloaf stack, BBQ cowboy burger, and an asparagus side with fried sheep feta; or chili cheddar burgers made with local cheese and local grass-fed ground beef and fresh-cut fries; or farm-fresh fried chicken with southern gravy or chicken and dumpling soup along with an array of craft beers and wine. Catering for private events will still be available.
For a limited time, you can still satisfy your culinary cravings at Farm Girls Pub & Grub. The dining room will remain open for dinner next Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26, 5-9pm. Abbe would love to see the vintage art deco dining room filled with new and familiar faces to bid farewell and finish strong.
As an added incentive, she will provide free dessert — blueberry fritters made from scratch with fresh blueberries just picked from Wolfe Blueberry Patch in Garrettsville — for anyone who purchases a meal and brings in a canned good. All donations will go to The Alliance Community Pantry on East Market Street behind the restaurant, to help feed the hungry.
“We put our sweat and love into this historic downtown property,” Abbe commented. “We were good stewards of this space. The Alliance community has been wonderful and supportive. We celebrated weddings, anniversaries, graduations and first dates here. I hope another restaurant will come in to serve the community, pursue urban renewal and continue to buy local.”
While the doors at Farm Girls will regrettably close soon, other doors are opening for Abbe to continue to craft goat cheeses and confections at Lucky Penny Creamery in Kent; and to pursue new farm-to-table projects that support local farmers dedicated to food production according to sustainable and environmentally sensitive agricultural methods. You can find fresh Lucky Penny Farm dairy products at northeast Ohio farmers markets in Tremont, Kent, Hudson and Aurora.
