The 62-acre farm produces more than 100 types of fruits and vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs and hogs. It supplies produce for neighboring restaurants in the Cape May area.
The Beach Plum Farm Market offers shoppers two floors of fresh produce harvested on site, plus products from local artisans. The kitchen serves sandwiches, salads, small plates and sides using ingredients right from the farm. The market and kitchen are open on Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m.–5 p.m. and 8 a.m.–3 p.m., respectively.
Beach Plum Farm also hosts special dinners throughout the year. There are spring and summer multicourse, farm-to-table dinners, buffet luncheons for holidays like Easter and Mother’s Day, dinners highlighting an ingredient like tomatoes, open-fire cookouts, a pig roast and other special events. Check the calendar for more information.
The farm is now home to The Cottages at Beach Plum Farm. The five historic cottages and barns are located directly on the farm and can serve from two to 12 guests. The cottages and barns are equipped with full kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, screened porches, washers and dryers, complimentary WiFi and access to the farm’s swimming pool. Check the website for full descriptions and to book.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
When a break from reality is in order, sometimes it’s best to not only escape your surroundings but also to escape your social network, including coworkers, friends, family members and even significant others. In the highly underrated world of solo travel, here are a few domestic destinations to consider for a brief solo sojourn for some ever-elusive moments of solitude.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Part of the allure of podcasts, aside from being able to listen during practically any activity, comes from the wide breadth of topics they cover. A well-informed host can teach you about any topic you can imagine. In the world of history podcasts, there are many in-depth, factual and entertaining casts to spend time with.
