Jessica's Country Kitchen
The Farm CoffeeHouse
is a growing catering and mobile lunch wagon company that was established in 1994 by Jessica Christensen. Located in rural Eagle Grove, the family’s farm was the perfect place to run her business. Over the past 20 years Jessica, her husband Richard, and their 3 children have worked hard to create the thriving business that exists today.
There is no “typical day” in Jessica’s business; she often says she will “try anything once”. It is not uncommon to have multiple events in a single day, sending different crews in two and sometimes three different directions. With two fully equipped lunch wagons and a full service catering ability, Jessica’s business has nearly outgrown it’s original location. This has led Jessica to her biggest expansion. The Farm is coming to town!
In the spring of 2015, Jessica acquired a store front located in downtown Eagle Grove. This new location has been appropriately named The Farm. Here, Jessica plans to continue growing her catering business in the facilities newly renovated party room that will seat up to 60 guests. Along with the new party room, there will also be a state-licensed kitchen and a retail shop. The retail area of the building will be the headquarters for Jessica’s third and newest business adventure.
Jessica’s twenty-first year of business has come with many firsts. Along with starting a new business and moving into town; Jessica has hired her first full-time employee- Erin Lindstrom, who will help in all aspects of the existing business and manage The Farm.
Together, Jessica and Erin hope to continue the growth and success of Jessica’s Country Kitchen and The Farm.
