Overview

The Simple Farm is our home and farm. We are a working farm and know folks love to see how one operates. Therefore, we open our gates just one morning a week for a few hours. It's the best we can can with our very full farm schedule. Hope you can visit on a Thursday morning from 9-11:30 am. We have a lovely farm couture style Farm Shop with baskets of our our award winning goat milk caramels and often little bundles of fresh picked herbs and flowers. We also curate a small selection of hand made gifts by women. Keep in mind, we close our home/farm to the public sometime mid-June and reopen sometime mid-October. We grow for Farm Members - those that pay up front (often 8-10 weeks) for vegetables, fruit, herbs and sometimes fresh eggs. When we are able to harvest extra, those little extras will be available inside our farm shop. Best to arrive by 9 am for the selection. There are little tables and chairs in our Gathering Garden where you can enjoy something sweet from Pickett Fence Pastries and $3 cup of coffee. Often our little herd of Nubian dairy goats are hanging around and in spring time we always have a few little babies.

What a great idea!! My family and I visited the farm and really enjoyed it. We definitely will come back and volunteer some time for fresh vegetables and the eggs were so fresh and delicious.
