News From the Farm

For a long time, I’ve wanted to start my own side business in addition to teaching. That dream is one step closer to reality after hauling home a trailer load of restaurant equipment today. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be serving up food at Autumn Acres Family Farm on weekends in Butler, starting in September. We’re working on building the commercial kitchen now, completing all the necessary licensing requirements, and fixing up the old farmhouse to make a General Store. It’s going to be a busy summer preparing for future Grumpy Goat Grille customers!



Fires have been a regular occurrence among Butler’s landmarks through the years. We’ve seen a lot of once-prominent structures succumb to blazes during our six decades of observation.
