The Farmers Daughter

The Farmer’s Daughter - Omaha’s brand new eatery officially opened its doors on Wednesday 18 April. This charming spot has already garnered a lot of attention and it is no wonder - the trio behind the concept has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hospitality.

Owner Kate Rose has a strong background in restaurants, honing her craft in famed establishments such as Prego and The Grove. Following this she was one half of the renowned Ponsonby cocktail bar, Mea Culpa, which has won multiple ‘Bar of the Year’ awards. Kate, herself, walked away with a ‘Bartender of the Year’ Lewisham award - so you know the libations served here will be nothing short of outstanding. Spearheading the kitchen is Josh Kucharik, former Executive Chef of Odettes Eatery and Hugo’s Bistro. Manning the front of house is lovable local Justin Fokkema whose passion for providing guests with a great dining experience is second-to-none.

The space needed some serious love, and that’s just what it’s received. The floor was torn up, the joinery replaced, and fresh paint from top to bottom have transformed the cafe so it is now crisp and clean with white facades and warm wood furnishings. Take a step outside and the expansive deck boasts an extensive view of the Omaha Estuary.

The Farmer’s Daughter has a simple ethos for their offerings. Seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced is what you’ll find here. In partnership with local growers and artisan producers they have curated their menu - house-made Granola is topped with Buffalo Yoghurt, Burnt Honey and Feijoa - a nod to the looming cooler months and poached eggs served on a chard flatbread, with buffalo feta and walnuts – think Breakfast Pizza.
