Our passion is living life well and sustainable off our farm. No boss, no commute. We chronicle our activity because we want to share how we support our life on the farm.
One passion is garlic. We grow Russian Red, which is rocambole garlic and known for its pungency and long self-life.
Another passion is providing a clean and healthy farm stay experience for our guests.
And too there is our wood-fired oven bread. We are passionate about our naturally leavened loaves of bread that are made from certified organic ingredients. From the stuff, we grow in the ground, on our trees or simply source locally. Wood-fired bread baked entirely without commercial yeast.
The benefits of naturally leavened bread over commercial yeast-risen bread are subtle yet substantial. Suffice it to say commercial yeast is designed to react very quickly and doesn’t allow sufficient time for enzymes to break down starch molecules. That means your digestive system must work very hard to finish the process of breaking down the starches and in some people that can lead to a bloated feeling. Hence, the term gluten sensitivity. Naturally leavened bread like ours mitigates that demand on your digestive system and thus can be better tolerated.
Well-made sourdough bread can be, for some but not all sensitive types, an alternative to the denser and less complex gluten-free alternatives.
Is it really bread without gluten? And yes, we are biased. We revel in the magic and beauty that is gluten.
And butter. A lot of butter.
