As we begin this New Year we look back and think of your bright happy faces and feel so grateful to have shared Pebble Cove Farm with all of you.

To those who came for the first time and families that have made the pilgrimage for years, Thank you!

Some traveled hours and some traveled days to visit. You celebrated Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays and Retirements. You got engaged! Wedding couples returned with babies!

You enable us to live here and we loved meeting you, hearing about your lives and learning from you.


This winter we built a meeting room/yoga studio. Our farm is the ideal setting for retreats and we’re looking forward to hosting engaging, nurturing and inspiring events! Having the farm be a backdrop for yoga, meditation, art classes, corporate events, education, book clubs and therapeutic workshops has been a long time dream. If you have an idea for a retreat, we’d love to collaborate.

The Times Are a Changin’

We now have entirely cruelty free bedding in the rooms.

Another evolution on the farm is that the henhouse is no longer open for guests to take eggs from the hens.

Although our lucky chickens lead long happy lives, the reality is they are a tiny minority. There is a common misconception that “free range” hens roam outside, happy and free. However, most hens, even “free range” hens fed organic grain, are kept in sheds with thousands of other birds. Standard “free range” practice is to cut off their beaks so hens in close confinement don’t peck each other.

All commercial hens are sent to slaughter at about a year when egg production declines. Even on small family farms, when the chickens don’t produce enough eggs, they are slaughtered.

Whether free range or factory farmed, male chicks are of no use for egg or meat production, and each year over 4 billion are killed almost immediately after hatching.

We feel by allowing guests to take eggs, we’re promoting a cruel system that is not aligned with our belief that all living creatures should be treated kindly.

Happy 2020!
May we all have a peaceful and healthy New Year!
Till we meet again.
