“Local, Organic Restaurant”
Farmhaus is dedicated to supporting local farms, organic food production and sustainable agriculture. We focus on using fresh, seasonal ingredients to create a memorable and intriguing dining experience. The menu changes daily reflecting Chef Kevin's inspirations. Come experience the ever-changing menu and welcoming atmosphere at Farmhaus. Born into a farming family in Greenville, Illinois and self-taught in the culinary arts down South in the Florida panhandle, Chef Kevin Willmann has a community approach to his food. Specifically, his menus are mostly comprised of locally grown produce and he partners with local cheesemakers, bakers and coffee roasters. Most of the daily menu items come from the bi-state area, while much of the seafood comes from the same Gulf Coast waters that Kevin enjoyed fishing as a young man. The cuisine is an edgy, refreshed take on Southern and Midwestern styles. We focus on memorable and intriguing small plates and tasting menus. Since moving back to the St. Louis area six years ago, Chef Kevin has manned the helm of some of St. Louis’ best restaurants and has taken those experiences to put a culinary concept together that blends a casual feel with a fine dining experience. “My grandfather, uncles and father were, and some still are, cash-croppers here in Southern Illinois. While all of the machinery and day to operations of running a farm were intriguing to a boy, my real interests were in the fruit and vegetable gardens and kitchens of my youth. I remember playing in the backyard and walking to the garden for a snack of raw beans and warm tomatoes. We would pull carrots and potatoes, rinse them clean from them well and eat them raw with a sprinkle of salt. My great grandfather had dairy cattle and my father and I would gulp down raw milk on visits. There were rhubarb pies cooling in windows, cobblers on the table and every jelly and jam fathomable in the pantries. I realized early in life, food was what brought families together. The canning and picking and shucking and peeling seemed to be the backdrop for all of our family gatherings.
