As with so many discoveries in life, serendipity played the main role in finding Wyebrook Farm. When I commented on an amazingly flavorful and utterly delicious chicken dish at the Farm and Fisherman restaurant in Center City, the waiter pointed to another table with the comment "the farmer who raises these chicken is sitting there." This is how I met farmer Dean Carlson, a successful erstwhile Philadelphia financial professional now in the vanguard of sustainable agriculture.

Wyebrook Farm is located northwest of Downingtown (Victory Brewery detour on return trip to city is a must!). It has a lovely cafe and beautiful meat and produce market open Saturdays and Sundays. The cafe menu is short, with dishes that feature the great meats of the farm and some carefully prepared drinks, like home-made lemonade and cold tea, both excellent. Plates include smoked pastured chicken, pulled pork, and the farm burger, all very good and served on a wonderful brioche bun and with fine fries. You can sit outside and enjoy the green surroundings or at tables on the balcony outside the market, with lovely views onto fields, forests, and a sparkling pond.

The market offers one of the best fresh meat displays I have ever seen, all products from the farm. The reason for the stunning display of expertly cut meats is Janet Crandall, who for many years worked as chef instructor and meat (butchery) expert at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan. The price of these glorious meats is very reasonable - I purchased chickens, pork loins and pork "osso buco" and beef ribs. The market also sells produce and Rival Bros. Coffee from Philadelphia.

Take a stroll down to the pond, past the cute little piglets (including Berkshires and Ossabaw) or simply enjoy the verdant landscape - a visit to Wyebrook is good for many things.

Don't get me wrong - beautiful country ambience here and the free live music is a nice touch, but they are still getting the bugs out after 2 years. We went to a friday dinner in July 2013, 3 course deal for 25$, BYOB. Salad was good, entree of smoked chicken was COLD...was I wrong to expect it warm? dessert of underripe grilled peaches and ice cream, good except for the hard peach. Its not a good value for the money, but nice that almost everything is local.

We went here with friends and had an absolute wonderful time. It was a cheese and beer tasting event sponsored by the Chester county cheese artisans and it was some of the best cheese I tasted. We entered the silent auction just so we could win the cheese basket. (We one with an insane bid just so we could win :))

Can't wait to go back and have dinner. You have to go here!!! The Farm is a great destination and you will have a wonderful experience.

The farm is a wonderful destination. We took our bikes along and made a day trip of it. Rode the scenic area around the farm. Later had lunch with a stunning view. And made purchases at the market. The the quality of the purchases from the butcher shop were the best. A memorable experience. Going back to tour the farm itself.

Wyebrook Farm is going back to the old school ways of raising chicken, beef, pork, and lamb for your family. They have fresh, local vegetables and cheese to pair with a variety of cuts that are not found in your local supermarket. It is bringing back the personal relationship between consumer, farmer and butcher. It is also a great place to sit on a Saturday afternoon with some wine or beer, some local cheese, and a burger while listening to live music that overlooks the whole farm. Dean is so inviting with his farm and Chef Janet is great with just talking and going over everything she has processed for the week in the butcher shop. The cafe is great and the menu changes, so definitely check it out.
