Kinston Brewery Hosted "Beer Benefit" For Farmers

A local brewery is held a fundraiser for farmers, struggling after a fire at a popular restaurant.

Mother Earth Brewery held a "beer benefit" Friday night at The Tap Room on Heritage Street in Kinston to support local farmers.

With The Chef and the Farmer restaurant in Kinston still a while away from reopening after a fire there January 7th, several local farmers that almost exclusively produce food for the restaurant are hurting so Mother Earth decided to help them stay on their feet.

The brewers were on hand to answer questions and offer insight into each featured beer and a portion of the sales from the evening will be presented to the farmers.

    Fact: The small family farmer was mostly run out of business back in the 1960's few exist now.what we now have is corporate farms posing as family farms.they are run like big corporations and most receive mega bucks from farm subsidy programs. easy to find at www.EWG.org

    Wish they would take some of their veggies to the event tonight and perhaps sell to those in attendance. Additional help for the farmers and great way to get good local veggies for those in attendance.

    I think thats a very nice thing to do, but lets not forget the farmer is not the only one suffering in this slow economy

    I dont think it matters which farmers...this is great. We always talk about helping each other, shopping local, improving Lenoir Co and Kinston, blah, blah, blah. Well, MEB is not just talking the talk, they are walking the walk. Love thy neighbor....you are setting a great example, MEB!

    If they were all members of the North Carolina Agri-Business Council - (not very expensive) very possible they could receive some assistance. Really neat to have a restaurant that depends on the locals - kinda like the old days. Good luck.
