Belkin Family Lookout Farm in Natick Plans to Add Hard Cider Taproom
An historic farm in South Natick is making plans to sell hard cider, and it has just been given approval to let customers taste samples of it on the premises.
According to an article in Wicked Local Natick, town selectmen have voted in favor of a pouring permit that would allow patrons at Belkin Family Lookout Farm to try the cider in a taproom area that the business plans to produce and sell. The post says that the Pleasant Street farm is not looking to set up a restaurant, though they would like to offer some food at some point in addition to cider tastings if they are approved of a common victualler's license. Selectmen do say that while the pouring permit is being allowed under current regulations, those regulations could be changed down the road once everything is in place.
[June 2 update: UrbanDaddy states that the pouring area--which will be called The Lookout Taproom--is opening this Friday (June 5), and charcuterie boards, flatbreads, and gelato will all be offered as well.]
The Belkin website says that the farm dates all the way back to 1651.
The address for Belkin Family Lookout Farm is 89 Pleasant St, Natick, MA 01760; its website can be found at http://www.lookoutfarm.com/
