The year 2023 marks our 34th anniversary of celebrating the beauty of harvest with our guests. Our farm has been in our family’s hands for 6 generations—more than 160 years. The farm is our passion, one that each generation has left its mark on, and we’re committed to continuing that tradition. We are blessed to share our story with our visitors, and to share our family’s farm as a place to connect with the land, and each other. - Our Story -
