We are a very small 2.5 acre micro farm which includes ever expanding gardens and orchards as well as our personal home, yard and wetland areas all while following sustainable organic practices. 2008 was our first year and 2010 brought a much larger variety of fruits and vegetables that lasted well into the winter months. 2017 brought the additional experience of indoor gardening with the installation of a 30'x60' high tunnel extending the fall season and allowing earlier spring planting while also adding the ability to grow not weather crops of melons, peppers, eggplant and tomatoes with ease. 2018 brought a broken wrist which greatly complicated my growing season but 2019 brought new rows of blackberries and Marion berries. We currently specialize in heirloom tomatoes with many different varieties from clusters of cherry sized up to 2 pounders as well as heritage breeds of Asian beans, Italian, Hungarian and Spanish peppers and Italian summer squash. Eggs produced daily by our happy, singing chickens, which are supplemented with flax seed for Omega 3 enhanced eggs.
This is our 12th year developing our farm and we very much are still in a process of working to form it to our needs while respecting the land and all that it has to offer. We have added over 30 fruit trees to our original orchard of 14 trees along with over 70 ornamental trees and 60+ shrubs. We have strived to plant ornamental trees, shrubs and perennials that will be attractive to wildlife as nurturing nature and the environment is as important to us as nurturing our customers with the wholesome foods we grow. Chemicals are never used on food growing soil and only used on other areas if no organic option is viable.
Our current program focuses on the no-till farming pattern allowing spent roots to naturally decay in the soil enriching it and naturally aerating. Additionally, we have added honeybees which we have found fascinating to watch and sweet with Bee Haven Honey which is occasionally collected in the Fall. We hope to increase our hives to four or more so that we will be able to sell some of our surplus in future years as value added products.
In the midst of major housing developments (they throw out seed and the houses grow!), our little farm is pie shaped and surrounded by native trees and vegitation, much like an oasis in a desert of housing, we consider our farm a little "Slice of Heaven".
Rhubarb is available starting March and may be available throughout the summer. June 2009 through 2017 brought a consistent healthy crop of tart pie cherries. Eggs are available year-round and although many of our girls are currently molting, our 2019 chicks are grown and laying, taking up any slack produced by the older girls. Please call ahead for pricing, availability and to schedule a pick-up. We are gearing up for our 2020 season, check our Facebook page for a current CSA application!

Such a gem for our local community! I picked up 30lbs of sour pie cherries that I've already sorted through them and they were a wonderful batch. Sweet, full of juice, and lovely color.... [more]
