once there were 3 families
....who were looking for ways to escape the city, and to create experiences that brought them and their young children together. They had a dream of creating a rural gathering place, a place where they could let the kids run wild, cook meals together, and have endless talks out on the back porch.
Over the years, that dream has become a reality. Marta & Steve fell in love with the community of Spring City, and in 2008 they restored a lovely pioneer home (Hollyhock House, which Holly & Brent eventually took over and made their own) on Main Street. Later, Becca & Peter joined forces with Marta & Steve to build a timber frame barn and a pioneer "replica" home (The Farmhouse) on the one acre adjacent lot. In 2018 we also purchased the neighboring historic home (The Stone Cottage) to add to the Spring Farm family - all 3 homes making a delightful way to have large groups gather in one farmstead setting.
We have enjoyed raising our kids together and decided to try our hand at raising lavender as well. In 2017 we gathered friends & family to help us plant 120 lavender plants. After a little water and a lot of weeding, we had our first bumper crop - 45 bundles. The lavender plants still continue to thrive and grow, and each July we get together to harvest, hang the bundles to dry, and use the sweet smelling buds in our homemade lavender products.
And lavender is not our only crop - in the front garden patch we enjoy growing (and eating!) rows of corn, as well as around 100 pumpkins every Fall. The Farm keeps us busy… but certainly happy!
What started out as a way to spend time together has now become a fun family endeavor. We have loved creating this magical place - where we gather with our loved ones, build and restore, and are reminded of what is truly important.
Our time at Spring Farm has been filled with joy, and we can't wait to give you the opportunity to create your own memories and experiences here as well.
We look forward to your visit.
