Seed and Spoke Farms is the creative collaboration of Andrea Harsell and Erick Vines. She the 'seed' and he the 'spoke'.
SEED: Representing farm fresh eggs from our flock of chickens, honey from our honeybees here on the farm, and a garden bounty of fresh produce and fresh cut flowers. Visit our online farm store for our homemade salves, lip balms, soaps, candles, and curated home goods. Produce, eggs, baked goods, gifts, honey and flowers are available for sale online and at our roadside farm stand April - October.
SPOKE: Built for thrill seekers, dirt bike enthusiasts, mountain bikers, nature lovers, and hikers. Erick hand-built a single-track flow course trail, "Ground Control 406", that winds throughout our property. In the spring and summer, it is alive with wildflowers, birds, butterflies, and the scent of pine. In the winter, if the snow gods favor us, it is used as a banked slalom snowboard course.
2022 - Our beginning. I have been a traveling troubadour for most of the past 30 years and in the spring of 2022, my truck needed a new engine and with covid supply chain issues, it was going to be a year before it would be back on the road. This meant that I would have to give up life on the road for awhile. Erick cut me out a section of the property and suggested I garden. I feel like it was God's way of forcing me to slow down, and to process the passing of my dear sister Gwendolyn who left us five years prior. I named it Butterfly Field Gardens in honor of Gwen who's spirit I feel in the many visiting butterflies to our garden. It was my first year and I learned a lot thanks to google. That first year, we offered an egg CSA and I experimented with many types of vegetables and flowers. We had a very successful harvest and many garden miracles. SO many in fact, that we decided to turn the venture into a small family farm business and Seed + Spoke Farms was born in August of 2022.
