Nestled on 165 acres in the Texas Hill Country, Jester King Brewery is dedicated to conservation, sustainability, and stewardship of its land. Several acres are allocated to our working farm, with progress being made towards food crops that can be used in the kitchen as well as for beer production.
As Austin grows and green space becomes less common, Jester King continues to preserve its small piece of the Hill Country. In 2016, Jester King began farming and currently grows a few fruits and vegetables. In 2018, it planted a three-acre vineyard.
Jester King is home to a herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats. Though the smallest of all dairy goats, this West African breed can endure the summer heat. Their milk is highest in butterfat composition, producing the sweetest milk, and softest soap. The herd is a matriarchy; the current ruling Queen is Luna. Jester King offers different goat experiences that allows visitors to mingle with the herd and learn about the goats grazing habits and Jester King’s general farming practices. Jester King plans to add to the diversity of its livestock over time.
In 2020, Jester King officially opened its 2-mile Nature Trail. Guests are encouraged to come out and enjoy the trail through the natural landscape 8 am-dusk daily. The Jester King trail system provides an opportunity for guests and the community to enjoy and appreciate the natural landscapes of the Texas Hill Country. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as the terrain is uneven in some areas.
