Welcome to the Wild Hog in the Woods Coffeehouse

All About the Wild Hog

The Wild Hog in the Woods, Inc., was founded in 1978 by local folk musicians and folk lovers. After a fundraising barn dance that summer, the Coffeehouse opened for the first time on Thursday, November 30 and Friday, December 1 (although the poster said November 31st). The organization is based on cooperative principals and is incorporated as a not for profit organization. The Hog is operated by its members, with everyone volunteering their time, skills and talents.
