OUR VINTAGE BARN
Over the years we have compiled a list of projects to complete on the farm. Building a deck off of the Farm Market was one of them. It has been wonderful to hear so many people appreciate the outstanding views and the relaxing atmosphere. We are excited to share our first Farm to Table dinner with great supporters of our farm!
Other projects have been put on hold as we continuously reinvest dollars into our organic farming operation and market. One of those projects is David’s dream to enhance the Farm Market experience by telling more of the rich history of the farm and its role in the community over the generations. Creating a museum-like component to the market that can teach and enhance our visitor’s experience. Our farm was homesteaded in 1874, a year after the first trains rolled into Petoskey. Every generation of our family had great stories of their impact on the local community. Telling these stories through pictures, artifacts that we still have on the farm or video of old movies bring to life years gone by. Stories about the Homesteading of the farm, stories about the band sawmill of the 1870’s and displaying the 32′ blade we still have, or the amazing and innovative stories of Elias and the Honey business he built including the 1921 patented honey processing gear. Or the era of growing potatoes in the region…and on our farm…and so much more. It is our hope that people will grow to have a clearer understanding of the history of our community in a time when growth is fast and furious in this area. Petoskey and Walloon Lake are treasures in today’s world, we want to highlight the best of our heritage as we grow into the future.
We are excited about our farm and the future of creating positive impacts on the community for years to come!
Thank you for your continual support!
David and Kathy Coveyou
