Beach Plum Farm Cape May

One of the most memorable activities during our Cape May getaway was hopping into a hard-top jeep and cruising over to Cape Resorts Group'sBeach Plum Farm to experience how their local, organic crops are cared for.

From strawberries and tomatoes to rosemary and parsley, Beach Plum Farm supplies nearly 50% of Cape Resorts Group's hotels its seasonal produce and is expanding to include chickens and pigs.

It was a timely visit for me as I recently attended an informative Stonyfield event hosted by Robyn O'Brien, the so-called "Erin Brockovich of the food industry" and author of The Unhealthy Truth, which I've been studying, jaw to the floor.

The pesticides, artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, and artificial dyes in our food supply is such a serious issue, I've been devouring everything I can on the subject to educate myself on buying clean, local, organic food, especially milk (O'Brien recommends if you can only make one small change to buy organic milk for your children).

A chicken coup fit for a Glamamom:

After perusing the grounds and munching on fresh-picked asparagus, we landed upon our breezy, open-air dining room where we were treated to a scrumptious feast prepared onsite by Lucas Manteca, executive chef of The Ebbitt Room.

Sipping mint julep cocktails and flavored lemonade from of old-fashioned Ball jars, we savored grilled wahoo complimented by the farm's fresh veggies.

Coincidentally, the day before I left for Cape May I was with one of my besties, whose chef huz was visiting Manteca at Congress Hall that very day! Manteca also happens to be Argentine. Small world tisn't it?

The visit to Beach Plum Farm was yet another chance to enjoy the old-world charm of Cape May and get to know Cape Resorts Group and my fellow bloggers better. Kudos to Cape Resorts for maintaining this enchanting oasis and making farm to table food a priority for its guests.
