Wyebrook Farm To Open Full Service On-Site Butcher Shop And Cafe, April 28th

We’ve told you before about the great work of former bond-trader turned farmer, Dean Carlson, and his vision for a sustainable food supply. Carlson does his part by pasture raising pork, beef and poultry at Wyebrook Farm, an oasis of sustainable agriculture just 45 minutes from downtown Philadelphia.

Over the past year, Carlson has opened the farm to the public during both a pig and steer roast and again to sell Thanksgiving turkeys. Now, however, the farm will be open weekly to customers via their new Wyebrook Farm Market, housed in a historic 18th-century barn.

The market officially opens Saturday, April 28th at 9AM and will carry beef, pork, chicken and eggs, all raised on the farm. The Farm Store will offer hand-butchered meats and house-cured bacon, sausages, hot dogs and charcuterie. Available cuts will be listed on the Wyebrook website along with recipes from their on-site chef, Janet Crandall. The Farm Store will also carry organic vegetables and cheeses from several other local Chester County farms.

Additionally, the Cafe will offer prepared foods (like the Wyebrook burger!) that can be enjoyed in the courtyard behind the barn, allowing customers to take in sweeping views of the farm’s bucolic 355 acres.

For those of you looking to develop a deeper connection with your food, we can think of no better place than Wyebrook Farm. And, if you still need more convincing, check out the short video we shot at the farm last fall, it truly is an amazingly beautiful place.

Congratulations Farmer Dean!

Wyebrook Farm Market
When: Saturday 9AM – 5PM; Sunday 11Am – 5PM
Where: Wyebrook Farm – 150 Wyebrook Road, Honey Brook, PA 19344
