Some Farm Info for You! 

We want to share our Farm with YOU and hope you will enjoy our simple spot on the planet.  Unfortunately, We are not a handicap friendly farm....hopefully in the near future.  Practice safety while visiting us and keep an eye on your children. Please do not run or walk through the herb or veggie beds.  No alchohol or drugs allowed on the Farm.  Smoking permitted only at the Red Bench by the Barn, please use the metal bucket for trash.  Pets allowed only on leashes and cannot enter the back fenced Acre....people are allowed, but not other animals.  We have a clean portapot available with a water barrel wash station next to it for your safety. Please, excuse a few weeds…we are not a Botanical Garden, but a working farm. Some visitors, catching us in the middle of chores, have enjoyed helping stack hay bales

and feed the chickens. 

If you would like to help a little...let us know, always plenty to do! We invite you to visit and experience…
​“Life Close to Nature”.

We gratefully accept donations to keep our Farm Growing! Thank you! 

Proud Member of the American Herbalist Guild, United Plant Savers and Drum Circle Facilitators Guild! 



We would love to hear from you!
