wild terra cider bar
6 12th St N
Fargo, North Dakota
We are located in the established neighborhood of Downtown Fargo. Directly on the east side of the Prairie Co-Op. We reside in a fully renovated and preserved Historical Stable of Downtown Fargo. The building was built between 1905 and 1910. The material used to renovate the taproom space is original walls, tables, joists, etc. Look for the plaque in the taproom that contains the pieces of history we found in the walls and flooring during demo.
We are trying our best to be great stewards in several ways.
Each year we buy enough carbon emission offsets to cover all of Wild Terra Operations. What does this mean? Sadly, we live in a world that makes it difficult to be faultless, through car emissions, plastic waste, high paper consumption, and many more aspects of our daily life. Carbon emissions offsets fund projects that help reduce global greenhouse gases through landfill gas capture, clean energy from wind power and improved forest management. Even though at Wild Terra we recycle, limit our water consumption, walk/bike to work and buy in bulk to reduce plastics, carbon emission offsets help to cover what cannot be avoided.
Also, every month we donate to a group that is working towards preservation, sustainability or youth wildlife education.
In order to keep drinking that tasty brew and having those WILD adventures, we need to take care of Terra. Note below the groups we have chosen to donate to and please consider showing the Earth a little love and donating as well.
Wild Terra Team
In the summer of 2016 when looking for a space for our project we looked at many new buildings around Fargo but wanted to have something with character and hopefully be downtown. The Stable was the last building we saw. It was cold, boarded up and had been left relatively unused for many years. It was essentially a storage shed for the former tenant of the adjacent building. As we walked through using our flashlights on our phones, we immediately fell in love with the building and knew this was Wild Terra's home. We worked with Kilbourne for some months to put together a plan that would allow us to do most of the work on the building. In March of 2017, we signed the lease and embarked on this amazing project of renovating a horse barn into a cidery. Ethan worked tirelessly on this building from morning till evening 7 days a week. He did much of the work excluding the certified trades, like electric and plumbing. All the finish work and design we did on our own except for the times we bribed our friends with cider. The building was erected somewhere between 1905 and 1910 and we tried to preserve as much history as possible. Much of the material was reused throughout the taproom including on the walls, the tables and the joists. Look for the plaque in the taproom that contains the pieces of history we found in the walls and flooring during demo.
