Casanova CSA features produce, flowers and beer
Casanova area “feels a little bit more agricultural” than New Baltimore and because Meetze Road provides easier access for Warrenton customers and those from their Manassas market days.“This is sort of in between,” Mr. Powers says of the farm.Of the 21 acres, nine remain open, with about a half-acre devoted to more than 30 kinds of vegetables, fruits and flowers.The range of produce varies from week to week.“Whatever’s ready to be harvested, that’s what they get,” Mrs. Powers says. “I try to focus on as much diversity as I can.“Like a half share will get four to six different items a week. And probably half those items might be similar to what they got the previous week. I try to build on it, where they get at least one new item a week.”Among other things, members this week received heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, leeks, red potatoes, red beans, summer squash, cucumbers, kale, carrots and basil.Mrs. Powers has two pick-up places in Fauquier — the Old Town Athletic Club in Warrenton and Whiffletree Farm southwest of town — and a third in Manassas.Mr. Powers has set aside a half-acre for about 1,000 hop plants. The first-year crop should yield 100 to 200 pounds of fresh hops, which he will combine with dried ones grown on the farm and purchased from other farmers to make beer.Within four years, he expects to harvest 1,000 to 1,500 pounds of hops annually.“The process of fresh hopping is pretty unusual here,” Mr. Powers says. “Historically, for logistical reasons, 99.9 percent of hops were grown in the Pacific Northwest for several decades — more than that maybe.“When I first started moving out here, I would talk to some brewers who were having to overnight them from the Pacific Northwest. They had to be used basically within 24 hours.”Fresh hops give beer “a little fresher, slightly grassier flavor,” Mr. Powers says. “It’s the difference between a dried herb and a fresh herb. But, more than anything, it’s just a new way to use them that takes advantage of a hop in a slightly different way.”A 1,464-square-foot converted pole barn sheathed in red metal houses the brewery and tap room, which can seat about 40 people.With five stainless steel Psycho Brew fermenters, Mr. Powers ultimately hopes to produce 500 barrels a year. Each barrel contains 31 gallons.A self-taught brewer, he expects this year to make 150 to 200 barrels.“It’s a very modest-sized system,” Mr. Powers says. “And it’s set up to use a lot of untraditional ingredients — herbs and fruits and all kinds of things I can throw into the different processes.”“I tell him what’s ready for harvest and what goes well,” his wife adds. “He figures how to make it happen.”That could mean flavoring beer with watermelon, cantaloupe, mint, coriander or squash.“We’re even considering a tomatillo and pepper beer,” Mr. Powers says.He typically has seven beers on tap, including a new recipe each week.Depending on the brew, a 64-ounce growler goes costs $20 to $22.“We’re trying to work out the logistics of being able to be in a handful of small, local restaurants,” Mr. Powers says. “That’s still months out. There are licensing reasons why it’s going to be a pain to do.”The brewery helps diversify the business and provide a year-round income source.“It will help us be economically more stable,” Mr. Powers says. “The CSA ...
