They have since learned the art of winemaking, cultivated grape varieties suitable for the Louisiana climate, and opened their venue in June 2022. Thirsty Farmer offers a variety of wines, including sweet, semi-sweet, sparkling, dry reds, and bold bourbon barrel reds. The venue also features a soda shop, hard cider on tap, and a menu of flatbreads, charcuterie boards, and desserts.
