MECHANICSVILLE – While it is no longer made on Hope Farm in Mechanicsville, Virginia, we are still fans of the classic Mrs. Fearnow’s Brunswick Stew brand. A great Virginia recipe, it has the proper ingredients for such a stew. In fact, the only Brunswick Stew that beats it was the Rt. Rev. Joe Pinder’s Brunswick Stew that he made at All Saints Episcopal Church in Virginia Beach. And that was back in the 1970s.
But back to Mrs. Fearnow’s, which is now apparently owned by Bost Distributing after being owned by Castleberry’s. I think it tastes pretty much the same as it ever did. Do others agree?
