The second bread day of every month, between April and October, will also be a farmer’s market. Local artisans from around the valley will come and sell their crafts: art, jewelry, meat, eggs, produce, and metal work. We will also be offering wood-fired pizzas on those dates as well. Please check the calendar to confirm the dates.

This farm, bakery, and Air BnB are certainly a dream come true for us, a dream that began during Daniel’s first deployment to Afghanistan.

Our dream was to raise our family on a farm, grow our own food, and bring beauty and nourishment to the community surrounding us. We hope to do that by providing you and your family with the most nourishing products while allowing you the space to unwind, rest, and linger on our farm.
