Hello there friend, here we are to answer some common questions...
Are you dog friendly?
Yes, we love dogs! We have quite a few ourselves! Farm- friendly, leashed dogs are welcome on the farm. But please note that there are free ranging birds - guinea fowl that act as pest control (and sometimes taunt dogs) and lots of chickens....so if you think your dog can deal with those distractions, we are good, but otherwise leave your fur friend at home.
Are you kid friendly? (Yes, this is the 2nd most common question!)
Leashed, farm- friendly kids are welcome...just kidding! Of course, we love kids! Afterall, we had three ourselves! Our farm does have a playset and games to entertain kiddos - but - please make sure you keep your eyes on them! Farms can be dangerous places - we do have farm equipment, animals, & poison ivy....so please keep them in eyesight! We also do expect visiting kiddos to be friendly with our plant & farm life, as well as the games, etc. out on the lawn. So please encourage kindness & care - and no picking fruit off the trees!
Can we bring outside food?
Yes, but no outside alcohol (per TABC regulations). We love food & we do have tasty options all week long, but we are also happy for you to bring an outside picnic! It's never a problem!
Is there a place for me to smoke?
Nope! Our farm is a smoke free place. Additionally, smoldering butts are just too much of a risk during dry, hot weather, and discarded butts can also make our animals sick, so please light up elsewhere. Enough of the butt talk ;)
Do we need reservations?
Only for reserve dinners & private tasting events. Give us a call with any questions.
"Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living."– Joseph Campbell
The farm was founded in 2008 by Wendy & John Rohan, who searched for a life more fulfilling...& careers that blend art & science.
John grew up on a farm with crops & animals & made his first batch of mead in Junior High School. After studying chemical engineering and software architecture, he explored the world of fermentation, & found his muse.
Wendy grew up in the wild woods of east Texas and studied molecular biology & biochemistry, then went to Senegal with the Peace Corps. After a decade plus long teaching career, she runs the farm full time.
John & Wendy have three now young adults who they encourage to follow their bliss as well...
