Berea College to open own farm store

BEREA, Ky. (AP) - Berea College is branching out - this time into the farm store business.

The school in central Kentucky plans to open the store soon and offer organic fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread, fish and humanely raised meat - harvested, prepared and sold by Berea students as part of their jobs with the college.

The goods will come from the college's 1,400 acre farm.

Store manager Bethany Pratt told the Lexington Herald-Leader the store is like "a learning, living laboratory."

The store also will include other Berea College agricultural goods such as honey, and prepared foods including quiche, lasagna and soups. The store also will offer gift certificates.
