You can taste Michelin-star ingredients without a restaurant reservation by joining a botanical tasting tour at Farm.One. This indoor farm has been growing rare herbs, edible flowers, and luxury salad greens for the best chefs in New York City since 2016.
On a recent tour of the farm with Untapped New York Insiders, its members learned about this innovative approach to urban farming, tasted many samples of the crops, and enjoyed a delicious mocktail. Check out photos from the tour below and join Untapped for the next tasting tours in December.
More than 150 different types of plants are grown at Farm.One‘s 10,000-square-foot warehouse in Prospect Heights. The farm was previously located below the Manhattan restaurant, Atera. In the new Brooklyn space, the farm has expanded and now includes a 1,500-square-foot showroom and private event space – The Pavilion – where a variety of fun and informative public events and classes are held. Visitors can learn about the farm and its plants at interactive displays, browse the retail store, and grab a non-alcoholic drink at the new Brew Lab.
Visitors to these public spaces can peek into the farm through a giant window. Before heading behind the window, our guide mixed up a refreshing drink of hibiscus and cherry with a splash of seltzer for them to enjoy topped off with a sprig of purple nepitella.
