Happy Spring from Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery!

It was a long, cold winter.....  Boy, that phrase seems more appropriate than ever after this winter!  We're SO happy that the calendar reads spring!!!

Out here at Wishful Acres, the grass is slowly beginning to green up, some of the hardy bulb flowers are poking through the soil, and the Garlic crop is sending it's shoots through the straw mulch layer that kept it warm all winter long.  Yes, spring really is here!

We unofficially opened our outdoor Beer Garden last weekend.  Whenever the weather is warm enough for you, feel free to use our outdoor seating!  Our beer garden is connected to our taproom & brewery, and overlooks our beautiful farm & gardens.  It's a great place to enjoy a mild spring day!

Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery - taproom open Fridays 4-9, Saturdays 1-8, Sundays 1-5.
