Stone Mill and Diversified Family Farm Tour
Sunday, July 15, 2018
Westwind Farm is a 120 acre farm featuring meadows, woods, animals, and more! Lee and Linda Purdy grow grain including hard red spring wheat, soft white winter wheat, spelt, rye, buckwheat, and corn, which they grind along with other local organic grain in their stone mill. They also have a substantial garden, growing vegetables for their community supported agriculture (CSA) program, and host classes on bread baking, cheese making, and food preservation in their newly constructed certified kitchen. Finally, they have sheep and chickens, as well as a 288 year old oak tree, in a most peaceful location, where they will start the afternoon with a farm luncheon. Join this tour to learn about a diversified family farm engaged in multiple value-added endeavors!
