• Dine at an organic dairy farm
  • Enjoy a short drive to the country
  • Feast on cheese, meat, and produce steps from the source

Just a zippy 20-minute Uber ride from downtown delivers you to the edge of the rolling farmlands the Midwest is known for. This proximity to Indy’s city limits makes farm-to-table dining a regular part of the lifestyle. Traders Point Creamery, an organic dairy farm (you might have seen their yogurt at your local Whole Foods), does it best with a polished yet laid-back restaurant in the loft of a restored Amish barn. Dressed-down but discerning diners linger over wine, the creamery’s award-winning Fleur de la Terre cheese, pasture-raised pork, and grass-fed steaks, all from the surrounding fields. The menu changes often and seasonally, but the Dairy Bar in the corner is a permanent fixture (many come just for dessert). You could go big with ice cream and the works, but we’re partial to a glass of their decadent chocolate milk. On Friday nights in the summer, get even closer to the source, and opt for a table on the garden deck surrounded by a fragrant field of wildflowers and herb and vegetable gardens.
