We are a small family farm and bed & breakfast. We grow organically and our produce tends to be much higher flavor and quality than you'll find pretty much anywhere else.
Summers find us mostly in the garden or greenhouse. With a 72'x16' greenhouse full of tomatoes and peppers, 200' row feet of raspberries, 30 blueberry plants, 50'x70' garden plot full of raised beds, and 40 orchard trees, there is always plenty to do. The rest of our acreage is currently left wild, though we maintain the open meadows and thin the forest for fire safety reasons.
Since the bounty of our gardens overflows our ability to consume, we happily share via direct sales at our newest venture, Country Store in nearby Curlew. Actually the store is just a mile up the highway, even though it is technically in the next town. You'll find Cherise there every Wednesday from April into October selling plant starts early on and transitioning to produce and all the bounties of the harvest season in late fall.
Most of our B&B guests come during the summer and enjoy the fresh bounty of our gardens, along with floating the river, hiking, birdwatching, and other such summer outdoor activities. But winter is a great time to visit as well (provided you have 4-wheel drive!), and you'll be treated to home canned fruit and pumpkin, homemade jellies and jams, and whatever other yummy stuff we dream up. Bring your snowmobile and you'll find ample riding straight up our driveway and into the Colville National Forest. By the same token, snow shoeing and cross country skiing are right out the guest room door.
Working vacations are always welcomed, so if you'd like to receive your room and breakfast in exchange for working in our gardens or helping with our ongoing renovation projects, please email us right away. Internships are also a possibility, so again, if you're interested, please email. Agritourism is welcomed and encouraged here! The local area has one of the few places in the US where you can go and dig for fossils, Stonerose Fossil Dig in Republic, WA. Homeschoolers could spend a very productive week or two in this area, working at our farm, checking out the remnants of frontier days dotting the landscape, digging fossils, and visiting the local museums.
A Thyme For Peace has a lot to offer and is a wonderful place to work, rest, or just hang out. Come see us!

The USDA considers Ferry County, where we live, a food desert, due to the distance it takes folks to get to food centers & markets. YIKES! Thank goodness for the bounty that A Thyme for Peace grows for us throughout the seasons.... [more]
