Farm / The Venue of New Hope | Participating in Open Farm Days 2023
Farm Type: Venue / Cafe / Greenhouse
Our Venue showcases the old country charm of our barn turned into a café/coffee shop.
We are starting Vermacompost which uses red wiggler worms to turn organic waste into new soil for our greenhouses. The greenhouse then grows the food for the cafe and it’s waste returns to the worms to continue the cycle. It’s our first year in production but by next year it will be doubled in size. Our venue is being used for weddings and events, and houses old antiques we gathered from our farm over time.
Our Venue has been in the works for 20 years. It is going to be a place for kids with autism to explore their strengths and gain confidence to enter the work force. The growing of worms for compost is a passion and the greenhouses helps us to put our worms hard work to use growing food for café to serve to our customers. Customers can leave with a small bag of red wiggles and instructions to start their own worm farm from their own kitchen scraps.
