Our honey, fruit preserves, chutney, fruit toppings, dried fruits, relish, heirloom vegetable and flower seeds are grown and harvested right here on the farm and apiary, and prepared by hand in our home kitchen.
Healthy - Tasty - Real Good Food
Our honey is always the best selling item, but we have a very limited amount each year since there is only one beekeeper with as many as 8 hives. You have all heard of the devastating diseases that plague our honeybees worldwide. We make every effort to raise out bees without using any chemicals so all can benefit from the precious gift of healthy and nutritious honey; the ultimate real food from nature.
Depending on the year, we have an array of fruits such as pears, cherries, apples, grapes, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and figs for fresh eating, canning, freezing, and drying.
Our jams and preserves are prepared with minimal sugars added for an all-natural sweetness and pure fruit flavor.
Our dried fruits and vegetables are harvested in small batches and they go straight from the vine to the dehydrator at the peek of the season. We do not soak them in sugar, preservatives, or any chemicals as commercialized dried fruit products often are.
Artistic Household Gifts and Accessories
We like to support local craftsmen and artists who are proudly creating hand made products through family knowledge "handed down" from generation to generation, using the best local materials and finest workmanship. Nothing is more beautiful than an item which is 100% hand made piece by piece. The hand embroidery products are from Atelier Pascale in Central Vietnam where skilled women for thousands of years are known for their intricate handwork with silk thread embroideries.
If you are looking for exquisite gifts for special occasions, we have handmade shawls with the finest silk embroidery. Each shawl takes a month to complete. They are designed exclusively by Atelier Pascale using silk materials that are custom dyed yarns, 100% silk of various thickness and textures.
Other items such as woodcarvings, stone carvings, and lacquer products are also available. Our partnership provides the artisans a way to apply their skills and support their families. We invite you to learn more about Atelier Pascale at www.atelierpascale.com.
Grow a Garden
Every year we save organic heirloom seeds from vegetables and flowers thar are healthy and proven plants. We collect seeds of rare and different plants to share with you the joy of discovering and adding new plants to your own garden.
If you or someone you know has a love for water garden plants, we have beautiful lotuses and water lilies. Roots for propagation of these plants can be shipped in the Spring. We believe that seeds and cuttings are treasures of the earth and are long lasting gifts that keep on giving.
