Just the trip down the long drive through the woods is worth it--and once you get there, you're in for a wonderful adventure. They have vegetables picked right there, honey made from their bees, jams and pickles and bread and other things made in their kitchen.... [more]
My husband and I have been shopping here for a few years. The people are helpful and friendly and the food is TRULY local and organic. They have a great little cabin store with a variety of items, many local crafts (as well as really beautiful African bolsa bags perfect for filling with kale, peppers, tomatoes and other seasonal veggies).
