More Community in 2020

Happy New Year, dear neighbors!

It’s a new year, a new decade, and here at Fruit Hill Farm, we are focusing our efforts on widening our community and deepening our roots in Millwood. Towards that end, we are looking for frequent opportunities to share our:

* Farmhouse as a community gathering space

* Our message of relocalizing the economy and food production, to grow resilience

* Explore ways to improve our natural world

Co-Working: Solution for Tomorrow’s Economy

Homesteaders, artisans, and home-based entrepreneurs, we are opening the doors of our 107 yr. Farmhouse for Co-working opportunities tailored just for you!

Just imagine getting up in the morning to head into the office, but your office is a gorgeous century-old Farmhouse.

Breakfast nook

When you arrive to work, a couple of your “Co-workers” are just settling down for herbal teas in the breakfast nook overlooking the garden.

After catching up with your community you wander the house to see where you want to set up a station for the day.  We have plenty of seating so you can choose which place best suits your needs.

Dinning space

If you have a team meeting or client face-to-face, you can sign up to use one of the private meeting spaces.

Living room

At Fruit Hill Farm, we believe that community is essential.  Join our community today!

Development of a Dream

Our vision is becoming a reality here at Fruit Hill Farm!

Let’s take a tour so you can see our project progress.

Our sign is finally up in front of our century old farmhouse. This house is full of character and soon will be open for co-working space membership!

Also, onsite is our Front Porch Store, located behind and to the right of the house. When you step inside, you’ll find all-natural products to help you live your best life. We also carry books and items made by local artisans- we must support local businesses and independent artists.

Exiting the store, go ahead to the back to see the progress. We’ve put a ton of work into what will become our demonstration and research garden.

This area is truly the heart and soul of Fruit Hill Farm, as it represents our commitment to sustainability and healing the land base. We’re 100% committed to turning this once-neglected field into a place where people can learn and see exactly how to plant the garden of their dreams. We are a small company and we do all the work ourselves. Our small but mighty team has accomplished so much, and there is more to come.

Here is the back area in April 2019…

In May of 2019, we are watering our newly planted orchard…

Our trees all lined up and ready for sale!

Speaking of plants for sale, we’ve saved the best for last. We’ve been growing our inventory for months, and we have plants for everyone- from the novice gardener to the seasoned homesteader.

Store is open

We’ve stocked a wide variety of edible perennials, fruit trees, vegetable starts, any herb you could need, and a plethora of berry bushes- both the usual to the ‘harder to find.’

Of course, our real passion is education, research, and community capacity building. We want every aspiring gardener to have access to the information they need to create the garden of their dreams. We walk every client through the planting process, giving them the tools they need to make their garden flourish.

So that’s our farm!

But why not just see for yourself?
