Behind the Scenes at The Homestead...

What's delicious, nutritious, priced right, and, no matter how much you eat it, you'll never get sick of it?
Our Local Chicken Flatbread, that's what!
With local goat cheese, crispy prosciutto, and fresh made dough (that gets grilled instead of baked), it's perfect when you're hungry and want something tasty, but don't want a fancy meal. 
You'll find it listed with the appetizers, but, in all seriousness, if you pair it with one of our awesome beers and a lovely fresh salad, you'll be good to go!


Just a heads up to those with nut allergies, though: 
our Romesco sauce, used on this flabread, contains almonds.
