Jeff and Melanie Brunty began their local foods journey as Brunty Farms over fifteen years ago. With a commitment to quality and sustainability, they began selling pasture-raised eggs and meats at the local farmers’ markets and from their on farm store. As Brunty Farms grew there was a clear need to control the processing standards and consistency of their premium products. The final product to consumers needed to be packaged and processed with as much care and dedication that went into raising it. This goal came to fruition in 2018 with the opening of the first store, The Farmer’s Rail, in Bath Township, Ohio.
The Farmer’s Rail, Artisanal Meats & Butcher Shop, is a specialty shop with an emphasis on “feel good for you food”; pasture raised poultry, pork, beef and lamb from local farms; sustainably raised and wild caught seafood; small batch grocery items from local vendors; hand selected artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and specialty grocery; and all natural deli meats and cheeses. We take pride in getting back to the “mom & pop shop mentality” of honest food and excellent customer service.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Farmer's Rail is a farmer-owned butcher shop and grocery crafted with compassion and dedication to sustainably sourced and locally raised products. Our company is ambitious and devoted to making it simple for our customers to make the best choice. Our goal is to build an alternative to big-box grocery and get back to the roots of being transparent, knowing your farmers and understanding your food.
