Swover Creek Farm Brewery
3 January 2019
The second Shenandoah Valley Craft Brewery featured in our Shenandoah Valley BeerPod podcast series is Swover Creek Farm Brewery. Host, Janet Michael chats with owners, Lynn & Dave St. Clair about the path to opening their brewery, what they’ve learned along the way and future plans for their farm brewery.
Swover Creek Farms is a Virginia Century Farm being continuously owned and farmed by the same family since 1854. Taking over the operation in 1997, Lynn and Dave developed an inviting educational agri-tourism destination beginning with pick your own strawberries. It has since seen pasture raised and finished beef and lamb, pick your own vegetables and berries. From 1999 to 2015 they participated in local farmers markets and the Washington DC USDA farmers market. In addition to fruit grown on the farm, baking became an important aspect of the products produced. They realized the opportunity to add a brewery to the farm experience along with a couple wood fired pizza ovens which began in 2014. Today the farm is growing to become one of the regions most unique outdoor agri-tourist experiences.
