Four years ago, we offered our lower fields to a local shepherd—and suddenly…we were learning to be shepherds as well. Today, we have between 10 and 40 at a given time. They are tame, lovely and well cared for. We spend a great deal of time with them—and know them all by name. We also raise a variety of chickens and ducks (Sweedish Blue, Rouens, Pekins, Anconas, Bard Rocks, Rhode Island Reds Ameraucana and many more.

For three years now, our garden has produced bounty. We grow a variety of herbs and vegetables—and this year will be adding medicinals and cutting flowers to our mix. In the season, we have an abundance of fresh kale, lettuces and such. Out of season, we pack our root cellar and enjoy canned goods and preserves.


Products & Passion

From the bounty of the garden comes canned beets (straight or sweet), beans (plain or spicy) and tomatoes. Our pepper jelly and apple chutney's were popular in 2013. There will always be other products based on what is plentiful—and what we feel like trying or you feel like eating. This year, the apple trees allowed for tons of maple and regular applesauce, conserves, ciders and such. We also make a variety of bath salts and herbal blends.
