farmhouse (‘fa:m,haus) ale (eil) n 1. The very model of farm self-sufficiency and productivity. 2. An exceptionally nutritious beverage brewed from farm grown, foraged and/or naturally present ingredients (cereals, hops, microflora and water) by the farmhands, on the farm, traditionally in the cooler months of the year when the demands for farm labour were at their lowest ebb. 3. Brewed to feed, slake the thirst and entertain these same farmworkers during the labour intensive warmer months. 4. Matured for many months before consumption, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria, often sour, exceptionally flavoursome, wonderfully digestible and always unique to the property. 5. Some would say these ales are the very essence of what beer should be.

A project which will be the pinnacle of our journey. We are working towards a brew that will be grown, processed, brewed, fermented & bottled all on our farm. A maltings & hop drying facilitiy is all we need ... but, let's just say, we are working on it. Please, be patient.
