Tree House Brewing Co., a popular Massachusetts beer-maker, is entering the Connecticut market after purchasing 100 acres in Woodstock where it plans to operate a large farm and produce cider.
The internationally ranked Charlton, Mass.-based brewery announced Tuesday plans for the Tree House Orchard & Farm Fermentory.
In a blog post, the company said it now owns and operates 100 acres of farmland, including 60 acres of agriculturally prime soil, grazing pasture for cattle, a produce and flower program, apple trees and “vast expanses of land to be cultivated and planted for many years to come."
The company will offer a Community Supported Agriculture program.
Tree House didn't detail the location of the farm. However, a Woodstock town clerk confirmed an entity registered to the Tree House founders -- Pride and Purpose LLC -- purchased the 93-acre Devon Point Farm property for $1.6 million this week.
A significant portion of the farm will be set aside for an orchard and fruit project that will include peaches, pears, plums, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and other produce to serve both the farmstand operation and the brewery’s eclectic fermentation program.
In addition to a barrel room for the fermentation, conditioning and fruiting of various beverages, the brewery is planning to produce cider in the fall.
Tree House opened a 52,000-square-foot brewery in Charlton in June 2017 and is in the midst of a 16,000-square-foot expansion in that town.
