Our home-made foods are crafted to old style rustic recipes, some passed down for generations

We use only the freshest top quality ingredients for our food and strive to source mostly organically grown produce. Herbs are sourced from our own herb garden and soon we will have greens growing on our vertical hydroponic garden wall.
