What you'll do

When you arrive on my property drive in the driveway and park to the left, there is enough parking for 6 cars, you will be given a 10 minute tour of the 1/2 acre food forest garden. Then you can: walk the property, pick fruit, harvest herbs, mediate, relax, enjoy the butterflies, bunnies, birds or hold a chicken.
Other things to note
Please wear shoes. There are chickens so there is the occasional chicken dropping. Fruit differs depending on the time of year! Spring and summer are best!

For the last 20 years I've been a back yard gardener. For the last 10 years I've been building a food forest garden on my property using permaculture design. Enjoy the amazing food forest(16 fruit trees) but more importantly the fruit you pick is delicious. The property is a great place to relax, pick some fruit, enjoy nature and/or mediate.

This was the most wonderful experience! Jeff was very knowledgable about everything on the tour and the fruit was delicious! They had set up a lovely spot for us to enjoy our tasting and we brought some wine and cheese with us to have with the fruit and bread they made. Their chickens were the friendliest little babies. I can't wait to go back!

Great experience! Jeff is an awesome host and very friendly. He guided us thru his orchard and it was so interesting learning his process and finding new fruits! Sapote was unbelievable. Will definitely be back!

Super unique and amazing experience. Jeff has really went above and beyond replicating a literal forest in his backyard. It is a sanctuary, it is peaceful, it is full of life, the fruit that we picked and brought home was unbelievably delicious. Highly recommend and very valuable insight from Jeff. He really knows what he’s talking about and was able to help my parents figure out how to replicate something similar and be successful growing fruit trees in their own backyard.

This was such a nice and relaxing experience. Jeff's garden is just teeming with all kinds of plants, and the chickens are BEAUTIFUL. It's a lovely way to spend an hour or so if you're in the area. I've been researching permaculture, having had some experience with it in the past. Hearing about how Jeff has made his backyard into a fully functioning holistic system was just so inspiring...plus, he let me take some fruits, vegetables, and herbs! (Also, do NOT leave without smelling the scented geranium.) I'm planning on bringing my significant other and some friends at some point.
