Woodhaven Place Homestead and Gardens has two main goals; Provide surrounding areas with fresh local organically grown produce and to teach everyone involved with the homestead why knowing your “farmer” is so important. Just like people are working to save historic buildings and preserve our collective history Woodhaven Place will strive to help preserve a very special food heritage. The property we live on was once used as a hobby farm, old apple trees, wild red and black berries, old grape arbores and mulberry trees have all been uncovered and are being nursed back to productive health. Woodhaven Place will be loved and cared for with the goal of it being a place that future generations can be proud of calling their own. We are doing all of this on 5 acres in the middle of the suburbs, kick off your shoes and stay a while, welcome to our journey!
