News Flash!!!!

We are  stunned and grateful  to all of our enthusiastic and generous supporters who helped us with a successful Kickstarter campaign to help us build a certified kitchen!


A  certified kitchen will allow us to serve food on the farm, host special events (such as weddings and family reunions), expand out baking to retail outlets, offer culinary classes such as cheese making and sourdough bread,   and share our kitchen with other local food entrepreneurs.  If you would like to support our venture, please visit  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1013085511/squash-blossom-farm-kitchen for details. Although the official Kickstarter campaign is over, we still welcome your support of the Kitchen project and will  honor the rewards for contributions!  (If you wish to be a supporter, please contact us directly.)
