The suburban farmhouse

The Urban Farmhouse is going suburban.

After more than two years in business, the Shockoe Slip cafe is expanding with a second location at the new MillWorks at the Green development in Midlothian, near the intersection of Woolridge Road and Midlothian Turnpike.

Owner Kathleen Richardson said she’d been eyeing Midlothian for a while.

“I had always wanted to have more than one Urban Farmhouse,” Richardson said. “I grew up in Richmond, and I have a lot of family on that side of the river, so I knew it was somewhere we would want to end up eventually.”

The second location should be open Nov. 1, she said.

MillWorks at the Green is a 12-acre mixed-use residential, retail and office development that is a collaboration between developer Tom Garner and Woolfolk Construction.

Richardson said the new location is about 2,200 square feet — almost 50 percent larger than the original location at 1217 E. Cary St. — and will include outdoor seating.

The Urban Farmhouse focuses on using local ingredients.

Savvy to know what Richmond needs and where to put it.
Great food, and a comfortable environment.
Now we need her to come out to Shortpump too!

I wish they had a good wine and beer selection and I wish they would learn how to make a good espresso and cappuccino. coffeegeek.com is good place to start. I love the space and what it could do for the Slip. Richmond needs correctly constructed coffee and better wine and beer options.
