Ed Hackett may be the most charismatic person in the Cape May hospitality business. He was refreshing and inspirational. And that includes me.
Ed was our host, along with Curtis Bashaw, for a farm-to-table dinner at Beach Plum Farm. It was a hyper-local event to expose us all to the operations of Beach Plum Farm West Cape May.
Food is picked on the same day as preparation. Redefining fresh and making Beach Plum, not just farm to table but the table on the farm.
Curtis Bashaw welcomed our group and provided tours and editorial background on the Farm’s purpose. Curtis charmed the crowd with a surprise and delight, freshly cut, fragrant roses.
Beach Plum Farm is less than two miles from Cape May’s historic downtown. Established in 2008 by owners Curtis Bashaw and Will Riccio, this working farm is open to the public and welcomes visitors from near and far.
We can’t all live this high life, John, but glad you can. 🙂 Thank you for the reporting and photos.
Mission accomplished, Mr. Bashaw. I’ll be sure to visit Beach Plum in June, in between hanging out in the Brown Room and your wonderful backyard.
