MaryJane and farm crew,
This is such a beautiful area and a breathtaking farm. It is clear just how much love and care goes into everything here. I am so happy to know that a serene and pristine place like this exists. My whole experience here went far beyond my hopes and expectations. MaryJane, thank you for opening your heart and your farm so that people like me can come from a distance to see it. Your vision and your farm and this organic way of life have truly inspired me. Thank you, and big thanks to your wonderful and kind staff. It is great to be around such happy, healthy people.
Much peace and love

We were married yesterday evening and were so pleased to settle into the tent for the night after a long (fun, but tiring!) week. This is pure beauty and I would love to live here. We will surely be back again. Thank you for creating such a perfect blend of natural and comfort. Happy farming.

MaryJane, Megan, and all,
This has been unexpectedly lovely on such short notice. The fresh flowers, the beautiful bed, and the warm welcome. What a gift to be allowed to read the draft of the Farm Kitchen magazine! It is lovely and soon I will own by own copy. We have sun today for our second stay here. Rain and cold on our last visit. The wind through the trees all night reminds me of the rolling ocean waves. It is so peaceful.

Dear MaryJane and all the wonderful folks here at the farm—
What a Wonderful way to spend our 48th wedding anniversary. It was an incredible experience. We had a wonderful sleep in the wall tent. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Thank you for the card and candle, and all the nice moments of our stay. We’ll stay in touch by way of the magazine and hope to return again.

This place, on a windy fall night, seemed like an island of peace and beauty, comfort and hospitality after my week of strange travels. You have given us a gift I see manifested everywhere I look—a rural home shaped by an artist’s eye and a sense of what, on every level, is RIGHT, and true. Your focused attention to detail draws my attention in turn, to the littlest parts and moments of life, and your grand vision is equally inspiring. My admiration for you and for this place is true and profound. Congratulations on all you have accomplished, and best wishes in all that is to come.
With love and gratitude,
Karen Fisher, Dave, Grant and Lachlan

Thank you for such a beautiful peaceful weekend. I am inspired by all that is created, all that is coming and more importantly, the ripple of intention as it goes forth. Thank you all for sharing this piece of “utopia”.

Thank you for creating & sharing such an awesome space of peace and relaxation. My stay was one of excitement, solitude, relaxation, wonder, exploration, and connection. Thank you also for all the amazing little details—the gardens and the animals were delightful, especially the quails that came to roost in our plum trees each evening.

MaryJane and friends,
Thank you so much for your hospitality and for the cozy accommodations in the tent. You made my first (and hopefully not last) trip to Idaho a memorable one! My children would love it here! Thank you again and I hope we’ll be seeing more of you in the future!
