About Us

We took a leap in 2005 by quitting our jobs, selling our house in the D.C. suburbs, and moving back to Vermont, where Sarah was born. Since then, we’ve explored the local food scene, started a garden, taken up home brewing, and become shepherds. Along the way, we’ve gotten to know dozens of craftspeople around the state. We want to share what we have learned, and introduce you to some of the amazing Vermonters who inspire us.

Farm dog, Leo, was rescued by Potter Angels and came to live with us in the autumn of 2016. He is a very good boy. He still has an Instagram account.
