‚ÄčAUSTIN - Local craft beer maker Jester King Brewery has purchased 58 acres of rural land surrounding its operations at 13187 Fitzhugh Rd., founder Jeffrey Stuffings said.

Jester King Brewery is preserving the rural land from becoming residential subdivisions, while at the same time securing space for future farming and food production.

The brewery plans to plant crops on the land such as grains, herbs, fruits and vegetables for brewing, wine making and distilling.

In the short term, Jester King will start growing grapes and peaches when the weather warms. In the long term, support for a farm-to-table restaurant, break baking, coffee roasting, composting, dairy farming, horticulture and production of cheese, cured meats, honey, fermented vegetables, olives and olive oil are also in the works.‚Äč
