Located in the village of Indian Hill, Turner Farm is the largest certified organic farm in the Cincinnati area. The farm has been in operation since the early 1800s and in 1994, under the stewardship of Bonnie Mitsui, it became a farm devoted to growing organically. The farm is home to a variety of plants and animals, both domestic and wild. There are open pastures for the sheep and chickens interspersed with gardens and fields. Turner Farm is also home to one of the nation’s premier teaching kitchens and provides educational opportunities for community members who want to bring the Turner Farm ethos of stewardship into their own kitchens.
Chef Stephanie Michalak waxes poetic about her favorite beverage and its storied history in agriculture and food cultures around the globe. Chef Stephanie is bringing her passion for beer to her Beer Styles + Food Pairings class in the Turner Farm Teaching Kitchen on Saturday, June 2.

As cultures form and change throughout time (and still are to this day!), habits and rituals have included both food and varying styles of beer. From my perspective, it only makes sense that there are classic food and beer pairings that have lasted the test of time.
