Jester King Brewery has big plans for its newly-purchased land next to the property, which it bought to avoid any potential residential development. The brewery plans on adding a working farm, orchard, and vineyard to the 58-acre space to grow goods for beer and the planned restaurant for the new space. Founder Jeffrey Stuffings told Eater and they will team up with a chef and general manager to run the dining spot. In a separate statement, he wrote:

[W]e seek to create a location where virtually everything we make comes from the land around us. If it can be grown, crafted or fermented using what’s available to us, we seek to do it.

The plot will include grain, herbs, and vegetable crops. Also in the works will be cheese-making, bread baking, and a liquor distillery, plus honey, olive oil, and cured meats. A small hotel, educational center, and event space will be built, as well. Stuffings was clear to note that Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza isn’t part of the deal.
