Drink beer with a goat, enjoy sustainable agriculture, and raise a glass at Turning Page Farms Brewery in Maine.
High school sweethearts from Ohio, Tim and Joy Bueschen spent years traveling the world, only to find themselves back home in America, building a sustainable business in #agriculture and #beer. An affinity for goats and a love of #homebrewing led the couple to their unconventional destiny. Tired of climbing the corporate ladder, they quit their jobs and found an old farm in Monson, Maine, in need of some serious love.
“We were just so enthusiastic, I think that’s the key to success,” Joy told us over beers at Turning Page. With virtually no experience farming, Tim and Joy managed to apply their business acumen to a brave new endeavor, and what Joy thought might be a crazy idea, turned out to be just what we’ve all been wanting– a chance to drink beer with a goat.
From #solarpanels to thermal channels in a year round #greenhouse to keep beer drinkers (moreso than plants) warm and cozy, Tim and Joy run a smart operation that serves their bottom line, and the planet too. Their tagline of “Small Town, Small Batch” reflects the rural nature of their community of under 700 people, and the intentionally small scale of their business. Joy sells her #cheese within a 10 mile radius, and Tim brews just enough beer to sell on the farm. This keeps their lives, and the community, happy, healthy, and sustainable.

Made In America
Hidden away in small towns, on family farms, down winding roads, are uplifting American stories of innovation and strength – stories of what this country makes, and what makes this country great. We survive the toughest of times and we celebrate our victories. That’s the essence of being Made in America.
Glass Half Full
Beer brings us together. So does whiskey, wine, and all the things we brew, distill, shake, stir and sip. Every state has their own favorite brew, so raise a glass with us to the distilleries and breweries helping to build our communities, strengthen our economies, and take care of the environment while they’re at it. Oh, and don’t forget the coffee roasters, we’re gonna need them in the morning.
