Though this property has been a sufficiency farm as far as I can trace, my parents William and Garma Petrie started their homestead here in 1982. Clydesdale horses dragged the logs from the forest for my father to build our home and sugar shack, while my mother planted crops and raised goats, chickens, rabbits & worms.
"Herbal Delights" was my mother's plant stand where she shared her love of culinary and homeopathic herbs. Many of the varieties she grew can still be found here today!
In 2015, I restarted the family farm, on a wing and a prayer, in their honor. It has since grown, not only to sustain us, but a portion of our community as well. Join us on our journey by following us on Facebook and Instagram!
"Grown with care, love and respect for nature"
On our farm, our home is in the center of a complex eco-system. We use natural and sustainable practices for growing, which starts with worms and compost which feed our plants, which feeds our animals, which feed the compost!
We are also able to feed a small portion of the community. We stock a peddlar's cart with vegetables and flower bouquets. Our farmstand is small, but houses our Usda pork and lamb, veggies & herbs.There are also wooden crafts and succulent planters scattered about!
In spring, please visit our hoop house for your garden plants, perennial flowers and herbs. *Best selection before Memorial Day.
