My husband, Mark and I were simply captivated by Just Right Farm and the possibilities it held for us. Seeing the rural-ness here that reminded me of my childhood in Appalachia, the woodlands that inspired Mark’s mindfulness practice and the elegant comfort that this 300 year old farmstead could offer, we knew we had found a home.
There’s a sweet, palpable, human-like energy to Just Right Farm so we named the little red house Alice; and I swear she joins in and often guides our decisions. I tell our guests that the welcome they feel here isn’t just our doing… it’s that same spirit of the place itself that made us want to live and share our lives here.
The long shady drive, the huge ash trees, the old red house…it is a special place that inspired stewardship, demanded attention from our hearts and made us want to stay.
Our lives on this farm express our passion for sustainably grown food, a grounded way of life and being a part of the rural renaissance.
There is a barn on its last legs and a new woodworking shop. Our house was built 300 years ago and the screen house is only a few years old. We planted a new peach orchard in the field and the generations old ash trees out front are now large enough to give one pause.
On a farmstead of this age everything seems to ebb and flow. Just Right Farm is beautiful, but not the picture of perfection.
This is the place to enjoy a summers evening, eat from the garden and know that this is truly … Just right.
