Simultaneously, we have 5 acres that we farm that offers a mixed variety of vegetables and leafy greens which we use in our restaurant and sell, as well, at local farmer’s markets. Onsite there is also a farm market that offers our veggies as well as other things.  We’ve been here since 2003 when we only had one child – now there are 4 – James, Winston, Elizabeth, and Murray.
