Southern Comfort Down East - SoCo Farm & Food

With this heat and humidity of summer comes the bountiful produce from NC farmers which are integrated into dishes at farm-to-table restaurants like SoCo Farm and Food in Wilson, NC. SoCo, which stands for "Southern Comfort" is about as hands-on with its food as a restaurant can get.

Much of the organic vegetables, fruit and natural poultry are grown on the farm which is the same property as the restaurant. And the remainder ingredients are proudly sourced locally. SoCo's harvests of its honey, 25 different heirloom tomatoes, squash, zucchini, and heirloom beans are some of the wonderful summer ingredients being used currently for the delicious organic dishes. But come August, you'll begin tasting flavors of pears and figs.

Those who make the trip to Wilson are invited to dinner on the farm for a memorable food experience. Before dinner, you're encouraged to take a walk around, meet the animals and walk through their organic garden. Dinner will be served in the renovated tobacco barn at 6pm or 8pm. They serve craft beer and wine as well as wine pairings with each course. The 4 course Prix Fixe menu ($50/person) features local ingredients and changes each month. Reservations are required. SoCo accepts cash or check only. Click Here for this month's menu.

Southern comfort along with the vision of eating well and eating local are at the heart of the food and atmosphere SoCo creates for their guests. When owners Jeremy Law and wife Kimberly Kulers started this farm and restaurant in 2011, the goal was to give people a unique dining experience; including creative, made-from-scratch food using wholesome NC ingredients.

Jeremy, a recovering military brat, began cooking professionally in '99 with Food&Wine Best New Chef James Mazzio, in Boulder, CO and afterwards served as Sous Chef to Vivian Howard of Chef and the Farmer. Kimberly, a recovering graphic designer and an eNC native; enthusiastically serves as SoCo's General Manager, Wine Director and Executive Farmer.

The renovated tobacco barn on their 11 acre farm serves a prix fixe menu for groups of any size Friday and Saturday nights at 6pm or 8pm. Groups of 30 or more can reserve the entire main dining room. A unique selection of wine and beer is served. Wine pairings for each course are also available.

Here's to Brew! Cheers to Carolina Brewery

Cheers Y'all! It's time to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Carolina Brewery!

Back in 1995, Carolina Brewery was one of the founding fathers of the Tar Heel State's now-booming beer culture. University of North Carolina graduate Robert Poitras has been making small-batch suds there since today's beer-swilling hipsters were hanging out on the monkey bars.

This year, the brewery will celebrate its twentieth anniversary with grateful nods to the locals who have long supported its two locations in Pittsboro and Chapel Hill.

Cheers! Every Saturday from now until September, the Pittsboro location will host free brewery tours in the afternoons and live music in the evenings. The company's culinary salute to two decades in business is the 20th Anniversary Local Burger made with cheese from Chapel Hill Creamery, locally baked potato buns, and beef from cattle raised on grains left over from the brewing process. Wash it down with a pint of the newly released 20th Anniversary American Pale Ale, a hoppy blend with a fresh grapefruit aroma.

Carolina Brewery is a locally owned brewery and restaurant that has drawn international attention for its handcrafted beers, all brewed in-house by Director of Brewing Operations, Jon Connolly, and his team.

Within the last three years, Carolina Brewery has expanded its wholesale operations and now services accounts across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, as well as parts of Tennessee and southeast Virginia.

Now that's something to cheer about!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
