Today, the Wooly Pig Farm Brewery occupies a converted barn that once housed a tractor and plow. Its beers are sourced from the same natural spring that nourished the Norman family, their animals, and their crops for generations. Between the brewery and the old farmhouse, 12 varieties of hops climb 20-foot-tall trellises. The tasting room has given new life to rustic planks and hand-hewn beams rescued from a collapsed outbuilding.
And the curly haired mangalitsa pigs that Kevin admired while traveling from brewhouse to brewhouse in Bavaria? They love foraging for walnuts on the farm’s hillsides and will soon supply cured meats for the tasting room. The farm is not only home to wooly pigs, but also sheep and horses—all tended by Aaron and Lauren, who built their off-the-grid house near the northern edge of the property. The whole family is committed to sustainable farming practices, preserving the farm’s natural resources, and minimizing the brewery’s footprint.
The Wooly Pig Farm Brewery is the first of its kind in central Ohio, but it carries on a long legacy of hard work, connection with the land, and commitment to community. Join us for a beer, and make our story part of yours.
