A couple weeks ago I popped in to DC’s Smucker Farms over on 14th Street to get a tasting of some Cured charcuterie. I was there to support my little bro but damn if Smucker Farm didn’t get most of my attention. I’ve only been in once or twice before, but recently they’ve added a substantial selection of fine wines and beer. Strangely enough, I’ve never had my brother’s charcuterie with wine – and man it made the bresola and coppa pop to wash it down with a tasty Syrah.
I also spotted Running Byrd sweet tea – a delicious brew made by another Union Kitchen artist, Ben Byrd. I’ve had the apple pie sweet tea with a splash of rum during a recent barbeque and frankly – can’t wait to have it again with my favorite bourbon.
Since most if not all of Smucker Farm’s produce, meat and sundries are local or come from Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC or Virginia, its a real pleasure to shop here. You know you’re doing something right – and food is highly curated, so you know you’re getting something special too.
