​​Because farming is our passion, it often does not feel like "work".   This is our chosen path, and our little plot of land is adored, and considered a beloved family member.  We thrive in the sun, relish the rain, and know we are at the mercy of Mother Nature.  Through the cultivation of our food, herbs, and flowers, we are sharing our love of the land with you.

         Art at the Farm has been a long term project             we've been cultivating for many years.  Last year    
we sowed the seeds of creativity by allowing a 
   handful of painters and photographers come out to        the farm to take in the grit, grind, and beauty that    
       surrounds you in the scenic Arkansas Delta.  This         year we're offering a series of workshops with a
    small group of hand selected artists.  In addition,           
            Jill will be offering floral design workshops
in the Big Barn at the farm.
