    Description

    Welcome ! We are a start-up permaculture farm and small campground focused on producing food for personal consumption. We grow a large variety of vegetables, herbs and fruit in our greenhouse, vegetable garden, orchard and food forest.

    We are a family owned and operated farm where sustainable living and permaculture is the first priority. We love animals and currently have some goats, sheep, dogs and cats. Hopefully more to come in the near future!
