We're collaborating with North Pier Brewing! The overall idea: brew unique beers that incorporate the fruits and vegetables harvested locally at Live Station Farm using our sustainable farming practices.
We are excited to release the first beer in this new series: Aster Bloom, a Rustic Harvest Ale that uses Honey and Sunchokes.
Try it now at North Pier Brewing while it lasts!

Hearth & Market
Signature pizza: Porcini, sometimes shiitake based on availability, with green Galapagos Island tomato and onion sauce, caramelized shallots, pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, truffle oil and porcini reduction, topped with green grape-like tomatoes roasted whole ($12).
Husband-and-wife team Steve Zieverink and Wendy Uhlman cook stunning still-life pizza in a sleek stainless steel-clad oven on a tricked-out trailer they designed themselves — plus they farm, forage and make many ingredients too. The artist and designer, respectively, say their most popular pie is the porcini. If you hate truffle oil as I do, please note theirs is a real truffle-based oil imported from Italy and so carefully drizzled that it doesn't overwhelm.
Find it: Saturdays at the 61st Farmers Market in Woodlawn, Sundays at Cultivate Brewing in Berrien Springs, Mich., and Thursdays at North Pier Brewing in Benton Harbor, Mich. 312-402-3814, www.hearthmarket.com
Great write up in the Tribune about recent connections of farm to table - featured is our endeavor Hearth & Market!
CHICAGO TRIBUNE 8/25/16
Instead of all following the same path, each of the five restaurants featured here started its project differently. One lucked into a partnership with a farm, while another started as a farm before getting into the mobile pizza business. One rooftop garden is the centerpiece of the dining experience, while another garden is hidden in a former alleyway. One even has an Oprah connection. But each shares a passion for locally grown produce, and the belief that diners can taste the difference in the food.
It was a beautiful Chicago night for Hearth & Market at Experimental Station in Hyde park with Arcade Brewery and Build Coffee! Farm to table to food truck meal including zucchini cake appetizers, rainbow Swiss chard salad with edible flowers, shiitake and prosciutto wood fired pizza and peach/blueberry dessert tart with sweet onion cream sauce! Wow and a big thanks to our Kickstarter supporters who were able to be there!

A moment of beauty for all the senses from visual to taste happened at the rookwood restaurant this past week to celebrate the opening of the hearth & market wood fired pizza truck and mobile market, and honor the kickstarter supporters that helped to make it happen.
Thanks to Mark Bowen Media for beautiful images of the event!
Well, we're a month into our wood fired pizza food truck Summer adventure! It's been an amazing and exhausting endeavor so far...I will say it's worth it to bring people exceptional, organic, tasty and nurtirent rich food - they can definately tell the difference and we've heard often it's like being in Italy!
We were so busy, we sold out of pizzas on Sunday at Cultivate Brewing! We'll be there every Sunday so come out for a visit, have some great beer and wood fired pizzas of course!
What an amazing weekend launching the wood fired pizza truck! Looking forward to next weekend and hope you can join us! We'll be at North Pier Brewing, 61 st Farmers Market and Cultivate Brewery!
