announcing pluck farm

Today is a momentous day for us at Steel String Brewery as we are ready to share with you, all our followers and friends, the news of the next stage of our development as a brewery. We have spent much of the last year working to secure a beautiful piece of land in western Orange County that will allow us to pursue the dreams we have long held for our small, locally focused brewery.

The land we found has been lovingly maintained by the previous owners, and features rolling pastures, woodlands, and a pond. Over the next handful of years we will slowly and intentionally develop the property to serve many functions. First and foremost the land will be home to our new beer production facility allowing us to expand the amount of beer we produce and focus on crafting an estate beer program, brewed with well water and featuring ingredients grown and foraged on site. The second stage of our expansion will focus on making the property a destination with walking trails, disc golf course, and picnic areas.

Our development will be guided by our values of long term sustainability and maintaining the natural beauty, and plant species diversity that makes this land so special. At every stage we will do our best to bring our community along with us, highlighting our decision making process and providing ample opportunities for engagement. We are calling this land Pluck Farm, a nod to our bluegrass past and our agricultural future. Later this spring we will invite folks to come see the land and learn more about what we have planned. As for our current location in downtown Carrboro, we will be doing some light renovations as the construction of our new facility progresses to bring in more seating and improve the overall customer experience, we are not going anywhere.

We couldn’t have made it to this point without the support of the Carrboro community, and we are overjoyed that we are able to locate our farm just 10 miles down Highway 54 from our taproom. Now, here’s the kicker – Pluck Farm will be neighbors to the Orange County trail head of the new Eastern Piedmont section of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, traversing our state from the Tennessee border to Ocracoke Island. Orange County will be building a parking and rest area along Hwy 54 only a few hundred feet from our brewery, with trails intersecting on our property for you to explore before heading north towards Hillsborough or south towards Saxapahaw, we will be the ideal location for a pre/post hike beer. We are excited for the opportunities this will bring to connect with people across the state who share our values of conservation of natural spaces. Stay tuned in the coming weeks and months as we embark on this next phase in our journey.

Cheers,
Eric, Andrew, and Will
