Berea College To Open Its Own Farm Store

Cheryl Truman | | October 13, 2013

A new kind of Berea College business will open soon: the Berea College Farm Store, bursting with the bounty of the college's 400 acres of farmland.

Picture it: Organic fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread, fish and humanely raised meat — harvested, prepared and sold by Berea students as part of their jobs with the college.

The store also will include other Berea College agricultural goods such as honey, and prepared foods including quiche, lasagna and soups. The store also will offer gift certificates.

Located at 311 North Main Street, directly across from Gold thwait Agriculture Building in the former broomery, the store will feature a retail area, two bread ovens and a cold room with a butchering area. All processed meats will be prepared on site.
