Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25, at 11:00 a.m., farmer Dean Carlson and his new partner, Executive Chef Andrew Wood of Philadelphia’s Russet, will officially debut their new restaurant at Mr. Carlson’s idyllic Wyebrook Farm, 150 Wyebrook Road, Honey Brook, Pennsylvania.

Wyebrook Farm - CourtyardThe full service restaurant, which will be open from March until December, is a natural evolution of Dean Carlson’s previous seasonal food offerings and pop-up dining events, and will serve lunch and dinner Wednesday through Saturday and brunch & dinner on Sundays. This is in response to frequent requests for a permanent dining option at the stunning oasis of sustainable agriculture. Guests will dine inside the restored barn or in the newsly expanded outdoor courtyard, taking in views of the 350-acre farm while enjoying Chef Wood’s fresh, inventive plates showcasing proteins raised at Wyebrook Farm.

“Andrew and I have collaborated on farm dinners in the past, and my guests and I are consistently wowed by his thoughtful, rustic-modern style and uncanny knack for whole-animal cookery,” notes Mr. Carlson. “It is a joy to have a permanent restaurant here at the farm, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this exciting next step for dining at Wyebrook than Andrew.”

Chef Wood will be joined by Sous Chef Matt Broeze, who will oversee day-to-day operations and allow Chef Wood to split his time between Wyebrook Farm and Russet, his acclaimed restaurant in Center City, Philadelphia, where he frequently serves Wyebrook products. Chef Wood will draw on his extensive network of talented, environmentally minded local producers and purveyors to source the other ingredients for his menu at the farm, preparing Mr. Carlson’s exceptional products in vivid, seasonally influenced plates that will change throughout the year. Pastry Chef Kristin Wood, Andrew’s wife and the creator of Russet’s exceptional desserts, will also contribute her desserts to the Wyebrook menu.

“Throughout the seasons, our guests can expect authentic local fare here, offering them a true portrait of this area, and specifically, this farm,” notes Chef Wood. “We’ll be presenting Dean’s beef, pork and poultry alongside fresh, handmade pastas and in-season produce, to honor their flavors and give our guests a true taste of eastern Pennsylvania’s natural bounty.”

Diners will immediately recognize the restaurant’s familiar look & feel, influenced by last summer’s successful outdoor restaurant at Wyebrook: tables illuminated by lanterns and set with cloth napkins, silverware and plates to complement the delightful natural surroundings. Later in the spring, additional covered seating will be available, thanks to a new carriage shed building, which Mr. Carlson commissioned to enhance the dining area’s intimate courtyard feel without compromising the beautiful views of the farm.

Seating will be primarily outdoors, both covered and open to the sky, all with prime views overlooking the pastures and woods. However, the restaurant will debut exclusively with indoor seating, adding the expansive open-air dining room sometime in May, depending on the weather.

Dining at Wyebrook Farm is BYOB at all times. Guests can expect a laid-back atmosphere that is appropriate for everyone from young families to dates to group dinner parties, all surrounded by the lush beauty of the farm.
