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 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. The farm market – once located a the farm was moved to downtown St. Augustine in 2017 (see info above). Currently the farm is closed for remodeling.  Rype & Readi offers special events including field trips, farm feasts, bike tours, agro-tourism picnics, and neighborly gatherings at our Market & Bistro Location and/or at partner farms.

Great for gifts or students, our pre-paid provisions cards are simple and easy to use!  Come on by and pick one up.

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.

Dear Friends, Family and Valued Patrons of Rype & Readi

As we close 2018 and look forward to our 5th year, we once again welcome and will be challenged by change.

 

As many of you know, we took a calculated risk in opening at the Colee Stables downtown.
Property ownership had been disputed and litigated for the last 9 years. Finally resolved, we were regrettably unable to come to reasonable terms with the new owner and our lease ends on the 31st of December. This was complicated in part by a commitment we had made to expand our market operations downtown beginning next fall, adjacent to a well known, well trafficked anchor.
Rest assured Rype & Readi will have a downtown presence again. But for the immediate near term, we are consolidating operation to our St. John’s Golf Club facility where we will focus on catering, prepared foods, dinner events, cooking classes and, of course, a market for fresh local fine foods.
Please be sure to keep in contact with our social media on Facebook, Instagram, our website & newsletter to follow our happenings and special offerings.
Our location at the St. John’s Golf Club is a diamond in the rough. In addition to having a full restaurant and bar, we have a magnificent patio overlooking acres of manicured greens, gorgeous in the daylight and tranquil in the evenings when the golfer’s day is done.
With plenty of space on the terrace and adjacent properties (including parking for several hundred cars) this venue, at the intersection of State Road 207 and I-95 promises to host some creative, exciting and delightful family events throughout the coming year.
We fondly wish you all a festive and memorable holiday season and thank you for your continued support. Please let us know if there is any event, occasion or opportunity to help you celebrate life though a special event with great food and smiling faces.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
With Profound Appreciation,
Your friends at Rype & Readi
