JACK'S SHOP KITCHEN

At Jack’s Shop Kitchen, we serve breakfast and lunch daily.  The menu changes often to highlight the seasons of the local Virginia farmer.

Jack’s Shop Kitchen calls home the former Ferguson Tractor Showroom, circa 1940. Later a manufacturing plant for Wrangler brand jeans, the building now hosts antique dealers on the floors above and below the restaurant.

You will find us at the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in Greene County, Virginia fifteen minutes from Charlottesville near the scenic Skyline Drive, nestled among beautiful farms and vineyards.

Allen & Naomi Green

OWNERS + OPERATORS

Allen & Naomi Green have been passionately working within the hospitality industry for 10+ years. Allen is a Virginia native, born in Fredericksburg.  After graduating from James Madison University with a BA in Hospitality and Tourism Management, Allen moved to Long Island, New York to work in the private club industry.  Naomi is a Lincolnshire girl from England and after graduating with a degree in Events Management made the jump to New York on a student visa and never looked back! They met working on Long Island in the summer of 2011 and have since worked apart & together in some unique locations in New York City. Most recently, running a private club in Manhattan together (with their two dogs).

They started frequenting Jack’s Shop Kitchen in 2018 after they had purchased a home nearby to be closer to family and fell in love with the great food & atmosphere. It was a planned stop they looked forward to so much on every weekend trip from NYC to VA and ultimately helped make their decision to move down permanently much easier!

They made the move to Greene County full time earlier this year after the birth of their daughter Lily Belle in May. They have always had a soft spot for Virginia and could not wait to start their family here and encourage the same values that they were brought up with (with food & mealtimes in the forefront!). Their two Labradors are also very grateful for the move & love playing in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains every day.

They are so looking forward to meeting you all & calling Jack’s Shop Kitchen home.

ERIC BEIN

CHEF + FARMER

Fortunate to have great grandparents with a farm in the Hudson Valley, childhood vacations placed an indelible appreciation of the land along with the unconscious unity of the table and the family.  As he wandered the farm’s gardens he was introduced for the first time to the orderly expanse of shapes, colors, and textures all of which, to his amazement, were edible.  Family meals were lovingly and simply prepared, silently expressing appreciation for the good land and the hands that labored it. 

These experiences stimulated what Eric would later turn into a passionate hospitality career.  After graduating the Culinary Institute of America, Eric moved to New York City where he learned the practical details of running a world class kitchen from the finest in the culinary field.  Eric’s time off from his full-time job wasn’t spent enjoying the many attractions of New York City, but rather working and apprenticing for some of the city’s best chefs.

Packed with enthusiasm and motivation, Eric returned to his hometown of Sarasota. There he opened Station 400 Restaurants serving refined Brunch classics.  Later, in search of the agrarian lifestyle, Eric sold the Florida-based restaurant group and relocated his family to Madison County, VA in 2015.

Jack’s Shop Farm was created when the first 6 piglets were purchased in the fall. Now an operational, grass based- rotational grazing farm, JSF enjoys the rhythms of caring for livestock, tending to the garden and enjoying the fine Virginia seasons.  Soon after, came the inevitable Jack’s Shop Kitchen.  The Chef/Farmer, needed a place to cook and share the bounty of the farm. By renovating the main floor in the Greene House Antique Shops, a Ruckersville landmark and former Massey Tractor showroom, he was now able to pay homage to the old while adding the new.  A state-of-the art kitchen, dining room and retail space featuring the best that Virginia has to offer. 

With Jack’s Shop Kitchen and Farm, Bein has come full circle in the beliefs which started as a young child lost on a farm.
