Like all our favorite foods, Agricola is fresh, down to earth and full of flavor.

We think food is a universal language—it brings us together and nourishes us. In Latin, “Agricola” means “farmer” which embodies our farm to table spirit and our dedication to community and comfort.

Background

There is nothing we enjoy more than gathering old friends and new around a big table and serving up a carefully crafted meal. Using fresh local ingredients from our very own Great Road Farm as well as from other neighboring providers, we serve food that brings people together to laugh, share and celebrate. Good food translates to memorable moments and we encourage you to delight in both as we build on the traditions of community, farming and breaking bread with friendly faces.

Philosophy

Making and eating good food makes us happy and we want to share that with you. We invite you to savor all your moments, be they big or small, with us. Every day is an occasion to celebrate, to gather together and to enjoy delicious food. Come join us at our table; lets eat together.

Community

We would like to work with members of our community who are engaged in hunger relief, nutritional education and culinary professional development. Our focus is on food based charities. We recognize that we cannot help everyone, but we will endeavor to support what we know—food! Our capacity to share may include our restaurant, our farm or direct support.

Great Road Farm

Great Road Farm makes its home on 112 acres of beautiful, preserved farm land in Skillman, NJ, just four miles from downtown Princeton. About half of these acres remain wild and wooded while the other half are split into fields for growing crops and housing livestock. Great Road Farm will supply Agricola with fresh ingredients such as vegetables and pasture raised chicken eggs.
