Farm-Crafted Beer at Market!
by Emily Black
We started Lone Mountain Farms with the dream of growing fields full of flavor. This has turned into a diverse farm of produce, hops and rare grains.
After 7 years of developing our crops, we are now adding another layer to the farm. Our original goal was to create a value-add product from our farm ingredients as well as bring the farm experience to our community. And, the idea of brewing unique farm crafted beer and sharing the beauty of the farm through tastings and tours was born.
We began the process of acquiring our brewers license in October 2018. Through MANY emails and conversations with the state, we were granted the go ahead with our unique situation. We are one of the first farms in Idaho selling beer made with our own farm-grown grains, hops and produce.
The next step was to design a farm stand with a space to brew the beer. We worked with CDA Structures who did a great job getting the building going to meet our goal of brewing by July. We are now up and running in the brewing room, but are still completing the farm stand.
Our farm stand will be open later this summer where guests can come and experience our farm crafted beer and have a tour of where the ingredients are grown. We’ll also be serving our beers at the Saturday and Wednesday Kootenai Farmers’ Markets.
We are excited to be sharing our flavorful farm ingredients through a farm-craft beer like no other.
Lone Mountain Farms will have their farm-crafted beer at market starting this Saturday!
