Weeping Radish Farm-Brewery-Butchery

Submitted by on August 14, 2009 – 4:03 pmNo Comment

Weeping RadishIt may have started as a microbrewery, but the Weeping Radish on North Carolina’s Outer Banks has expanded exponentially in its seven-year history. The Craft Brewer creates natural unfiltered beer draft and in refillable bottles. The Master Butcher buys animals from local farms and creates a variety of fresh and smoked meat products, all labeled by Farm of Origin. The 14-acre farm produces vegetables, eggs and herbs for retail and for the Chef. The Chef creates meals for the on-site restaurant based on availability of fresh meats and vegetables, not based on a pre-set menu. The Farm Retail Barn features a “Goodness grows in North Carolina” section and promotes educational tours. Festivals and Events throughout the year promote a sense of community and provides charities with fund raising facilities.

Weeping Radish BeerThis project, located at 6810 Carotoke Highway, Jarvisburg, North Carolina, features all the elements of sustainable farming, while educating the urban population and integrating it with the Terra Madre concept (a network of food communities, each committed to producing quality food in a responsible, sustainable way).

So, Road Trip Foodies, if your path takes you anywhere between Norfolk, Virginia, and the Outer Banks, plan to stop by. The Weeping Radish offers free self-guided tours of the brewery. The Butchery is a joint venture with Gunther Kühle, a Master Butcher from Germany who imported all his equipment from his homeland. Weeping Radish works directly with local farms, to ensure that all animals are raised naturally.

Weeping Radish The Barn Restaurant features all the products from the brewery, the butchery and the farm. Here, it is not the chef who decides what to have on the menu for the entire year, but the fresh products from the butchery and the farm will determine what the chef will offer. The goal of the restaurant is to entice the customer to buy the products to go from the Barn Store and try various recipes at home. So, of course you’ll visit the Barn Store, which features not only all Weeping Radish beers “to go” (in either 1 liter flip top bottles and ½ liter bottles and cases), but also meats and vegetables from the butchery and the farm — “Farm to Fork” as it were!
