The Old Farm In Washington That’s A Store, Bed & Breakfast, and Wedding Venue All In One
Washington happens to be one of the most productive growing regions in the world, which is good news for our food scene. We have some wonderful farms here, some of which you can visit to buy (or even pick) your own produce. And at Heyday Farm on Bainbridge Island, you can stay for a meal, then stay for the night.
Heyday Farm is located at 4370 NE Old Mill Rd. on beautiful Bainbridge Island.
Bainbridge is just a short ferry ride from Seattle, but it feels like a different world.
The 25-acre historic family farm includes a farmhouse, a farm kitchen, a micro-creamery, gardens, greenhouses, and pastures for animals.
Heyday Farm was founded in 2011, but the farm land itself is much older. In fact, it was slated for development when it was purchased and restored.
Food is grown here using a cutting edge system of crop and animal rotation, solar power, water recapture and composting.
In 2013, the farm was awarded by the Bainbridge Island Historic Preservation Commission for their historic preservation efforts.
Every Tuesday evening all year long, the farm hosts a special open seating dinner from 5-8:30 p.m.
The offer a small a la carte menu that rotates weekly, and it's always amazing.
Aside from the weekly dinners, the farm regularly hosts special meals and cooking classes.
They're always multi-course experiences that take farm to table dining to a whole new level.
You can also buy fresh ingredients at the nearby Farm Store and prepare your own feast.
Along with abundant fresh, seasonal produce, the store has raw honey, creamery cheese and yogurt, broiler chickens, cuts of beef and pork, and farm fresh eggs.
While the folks at Heyday Farm don't consider it primarily an events venue, but you're welcome to host a private retreat or a wedding there.
Between the gardens, the farmhouse, and the beautiful barn, the setting is pretty much perfect for saying your I Dos.
Speaking of the farmhouse, this four-bedroom charmer dates back to the 1890s, and it's available for overnight accommodations.
A big farm breakfast is included in your stay.
The farmhouse offers all the comforts of home, and you'll love experiencing a true farm stay.
You can rent a room or book all four of them for a group outing.
Whether you come to enjoy a hearty meal, spend the night, attend an event or just stock your shelves with farm fresh goodness, Heyday Farm is a must-see.
Come see why it's such a beloved part of the Bainbridge Island community.
