Brenham, Texas has a long agricultural history dating back to before it was even incorporated. When the railroad came, Brenham gained more processing facilities and the town became a regional hub and supplier of many essential resources. As American industry increased, agriculture decreased, and the same was true in Brenham, Texas. About a century later, the advent of the Home Sweet Farm CSA program in 2004 was a big deal a departure from what locals were used to. Since, residents of Washington County have been increasingly aware of where their food comes from.

Since being reminded of the importance and worth of locally grown food, residents of Washington County have been increasingly interested in where their food is coming from. Home Sweet Farm has been expanding their local food movement ever since, with their latest addition to the business being the new downtown Brenham Biergarten.

About the Home Sweet Farm Market Biergarten

Serving their mission of the 50-mile food movement – in which they only source things from within a 50-mile radius of Brenham – the biergarten serves only locally made craft beers. They boast the largest selection of craft beers in all of Washing County and serve it alongside grilled bratwurst on pretzel buns with all kinds of fresh toppings and garnish that will make your mouth water – all locally made of course! The fresh and local model offers visitors an experience that is unique in that it is more than just sensory but also cultural as you get a taste for the area and its people.

Friday nights are Spaghetti Western Movie Night, showing those cheesy, dubbed western flicks that are the perfect compliment to country-made craft beer after a long work week. On Saturday evening come out to enjoy free concerts featuring both local and regional musicians from a variety of backgrounds and playing many different genres. Some upcoming performers include The Kitowskis, Jack Carr, and Cody Ray Henry. Shows start at 8:30 and take place in the lovely courtyard. A few times a month you can also buy tickets for their Saturday night Farm to Market Dinners and have a great night out of food and music!

About Home Sweet Farm

Coming from generations of farmers, Brad and Jenny Stufflebeam and their two daughters, are passionate and talented farmers who love nothing more than providing their community with sustenance. The farm’s CSA program led eventually to them opening the downtown Home Sweet Farm Market, which is open every day, and hosts a weekly farmers market on Sundays. They sell products from local agricultural producers from around the area, carrying everything from fresh milk and cheese, to grass fed beef. After a successful start to the market, the Biergarten extension was opened hosting weekly events that bring the whole community together around local foods.

 

If you’re at all interest in the local food movement and passionate about knowing your farmer, you’ll love visiting the Home Sweet Farm Market while in town.
