It's basically an all you can eat buffet that is brought to your table, family meal style. The place is always packed and I can see why. I definitely recommend it.

The fact that you use canned vegetables is not a secret to anybody who has eaten there.

We have eaten there too, and to me, it was good, but too much like eating my own cooking, I cook like this daily, with the exception that my veggies are canned and frozen from my garden every year.
I'v always wanted to try Shirleys resteraunt in Elizabethton, and the Daniel Boone Inn in Boone, NC, but never have. Its family-style like this one too.

The Farmers Daughter has some of the best tasteing and consistently prepared food I have ever had.
I first found it about two years ago and have been back about five times. I drive in from Charlotte, N.C.
about two hours away. Everything is fresh mostly local produce and the breads and deserts are made there.

Oooh carrot souffle! This is the CopyKat recipe for Picadilly's carrot souffle. It's great - we make it at home on holidays. I haven't eaten at the Farmers Daughter so I don't know if this is the same one, but there's a good chance it is. This recipe is GREAT.

Recipe note: It says use a mixer, but the carrots stay lumpy for a long time that way. If you have a stand mixer that you can walk away from while it goes, then good. Otherwise you can blend in a food processor, blender or smoothie maker for fast easy results. Be aware that the carrots do stain plastic, so I speak from experience when I say that if you whirl them in your spouses beloved plastic smoothie maker, they will not be happy.

This has been one of CopyKat’s favorite recipes. We have Christine Kent to thank for this one. Her insight brought this recipe to us.
3 1/2 lbs. peeled Carrots
2 1/2 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Baking powder
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/4 C. flour
6 eggs
1/2 lb. Margarine
Powdered sugar
1. Steam or boil carrots until extra soft. Drain well.
2. While carrots are warm, add sugar, baking powder, and vanilla.
3. Whip with mixer until smooth.
4. Add flour and mix well.
5. Whip eggs and add to flour mixture, blend well.
6. Add softened margarine to mixture and blend well.
7. Pour mixture into 13 by 9 inch baking dish about half full as the souffle will rise.
8. Bake in 350-degree oven about 1 hour or until top is a light golden brown.
9. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar over top before serving.

The owner is not actually Mennonite. However, he doesn't discourage people from forming that impression.
