Local family opening Hooby's Farm

Hooby’s Farm, a 40-acre offshoot of Hooby’s Brewing near Winters and just outside the City of Davis limits, opened up last weekend with live music, beer and plenty of fun. 

The area, located at 24830 County Rd 95 (Davis), remains a working farm with animals and rows of vegetables. Sheep, goats, chickens and one pig can be found on the premises. Of course, the out-of-the-way beer garden atmosphere is the main draw of the farm, which sells Hooby’s beer out of a beer trailer — alcohol from elsewhere isn’t permitted — and a few food and non-alcoholic drink options. 

“That’s kind of the whole idea of the farm,” said co-owner Courtney Stocking. “Just relax and disconnect from things.” 

The farm was acquired by the Stocking family in July last year, and they’ve been working in the meantime to transform it into a fun venue. Hooby’s Brewing first opened in downtown Winters in 2019, and features locally sourced food and drinks. As for the brand new farm, there’s still much room for growth and change, partially depending on community feedback, according to Stocking.

The farm could be expanded out to grow hops or fruit, to explore opportunities with building around the property, and to add more shade, Stocking said. Manufacturing or a tap room might be added, she also said.

But for now, the farm will serve as a weekend beer garden to all who choose to venture out along the county roads.
