Due to some 'Personal' Family Health issues we will be closed and not accepting guests for the rest of April and May. We will re- open in June - that also with a few unique changes: We will be a 'No plastic' zone - No 'Mineral Water Bottles allowed on the property' - if you bring your own bottle we will give you some of the purest ground water, with taste, for free. We will encourage you to deposit all your plastics in a special bin for future recycling, all you compos-tables in a different bin for composting, and all your paper and metal in a separate bin for future recycling.
