Simple and affordable, we have developed a great menu including our famous farmhouse biscuits, local jams and honey, ½ pound steak-burgers and double-fried Elkton potato fries (Yum Yum). Our value dinners feature Taco Tuesday, Wings Wednesday and Fried Chicken Friday (all you can eat for $9.95).

Rype & Readi Elkton Farm planted its local roots at our 22 acre farm at the intersection of State Road 207 and County Road 305. Located only 12 miles from downtown historic St Augustine, we cultivate hydroponic herbs & lettuce, grow mushroom logs, citrus, figs, pecans, and maintain a demonstration organic vegetable garden to partially supply our downtown farm market. Our pastures serve to graze our celebrity herd of cows, donkeys, goats, geese, ducks and turkeys while also housing the commercial production of Natural Springs Dairy and their free-range poultry operations. Natural Springs Dairy produces raw milk, cheese, butter, ghee, yogurt, and farm fresh eggs daily and offer them to the public in a small farm store on the property. Rype & Readi maintains a large tent for special events including field trips, farm feasts, bike tours, agrotourism picnics, and neighborly gatherings. Seasonally, we offer hayrides, bonfires, and experiential learning opportunities for young and old alike. Our gardens always feature local seasonal favorite fruits, vegetables and flowers. Rype & Readi is a family-friendly St. Johns County destination for families, chefs, farmers, and foodies who appreciate local, fresh, high quality foods. Discover for yourself. There’s always something new to see, do, and taste!
Join us for some fun and good food!
Every meal provides an occasion to celebrate life with family and friends. This may be the most profound legacy of our Rype & Readi project. Events represent the best of what we have to offer. Whether it’s a cooking class on a date, a farm feast roasting a whole animal around a pecan and oak bonfire with your neighbors, or chaperoning an afternoon field trip with your children where they can experience the joy of hand-feeding a farm animal first-hand, our events are intended to be simple, stimulating, and always memorable.
