Our Time Together

I have intentionally kept the itinerary simple and leisurely to create space for you to explore, connect and rest

The Quiet

Solitude & silence have been long time companions to finding rest for weary souls. Restraining for a time from words, music & other outside noises allows one to pay attention to the interior movements of soul. Participants are encourage to keep silence for the time on the Farm.

Staying at the Farm

There are 4 available beds located in two different
structures all within walking distance of one another
on the property. I have planned for each overnight guest to have their own bedroom with access to a full bathroom and kitchen. All
linens, towels and meals are provided.


A Day at the Farm

Enjoy the pastoral setting rocking on the porch, strolling through forest, resting in a hammock by the stream.  There is an art studio available for painting, drawing or any creative project (bring your own materials). Indoors you will enjoy plenty of places to sit, read & perhaps nap. 

Friday, October 13

Meet Kayla Friday evening after 4pm for a welcome & information on the farm. Retreat materials will be available. No dinner will be provided.

Saturday, October 14

Help yourself to a light breakfast of pastries, yogurt & fruit in your kitchen. Coffee available.

When you are ready, enjoy a simple brown bag lunch. Located in the Tree House.

Join us in the Tree House for a light dinner, final reflection and an opportunity to share how God met you on the farm.

Sunday, October 15

At your own pace, enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning with silence & solitude. There will be no planned gatherings or activities, but my hope is that you will take time to linger in a bit more rest before making your way home. A light breakfast will be provided in your kitchen.
