We use only naturally-raised meats, organic milk and eggs for our house-made yogurt and pastries; and hand-selected, seasonal organic fruits, herbs and vegetables – some harvested daily from our own organic garden. We compost all raw kitchen scraps for our organic garden and vegetarian leftovers are fed to our laying hens.
