Growing Heart Farm is community focused farm dedicated to sustainable living and education. There is a rustic outdoor chapel with a stone portal that overlooks a meadow. A 300-year-old oak tree presides over a sacred circle in the woods. A swing hangs from a maple tree in the back yard and there is an outdoor firepit to warm the soul.
