Our Friend Bakery

Our Friend Bakery is a small cottage foods bakery that focuses on using locally grown grain milled by stone, that we mill ourselves. Baker Daniel Gray’s bread, pastries, and pizza are all naturally leavened, meaning there’s no commercial yeast. This creates a more flavorful and digestible product due to the extended fermentation times. The flavor is in the nutrition and we seek to retain both as much as possible.

Five Freedoms Dairy

Five Freedoms Dairy was founded by veterinarian Kevin McSweeney with the goal of creating a small but sustainable dairy focused on improved animal welfare, by providing a heathier and more enriched life. The centerpiece of this enrichment is our system of leaving the cows and calves together for many months after birth. While working as a dairy veterinarian on large dairies, Kevin witnessed years of cows being treated like a commodity within industrial agriculture. Cows often spend their lives on concrete, given little to no access to the outside or even sunlight, and are separated from their calves immediately after birth. What people think is acceptable welfare is a subjective thing and constantly changing. Kevin believed that many of our consumers expect a better life for the cows that produce the milk for their dairy products, and that is why he created Five Freedoms Dairy.

At Five Freedoms Dairy, our cows live outside with access to pasture, shade and soft bedding. Mothers are allowed to care for and nurse their young for at least 5 months after birth. Simply put, the cows are treated like the intelligent, gentle creatures they are, animals that so nobly share their milk with us. 
Kevin hopes that this model of a small dairy will also grow and give other small dairies a chance stay alive in an increasingly difficult market.

Our mission at Berchta is to grow exceptionally nourishing and healing herbal plant medicine for the sustained wellness and health of our community while building fertile soil and healthy plant life. We grow common/native, at-risk, drought tolerant, alpine (and tropical) plants as nursery stock (starter plants for your own gardens AND harvested fresh plant material from our farm) so that clinical herbalists, food artisans, and other community workers can apply their profession using the freshest, most delightful, and locally grown herbs. We follow rigorous, beyond USDA organic growing practices honed from almost a decade of regenerative farming experience–we pledge to always do so.  We start almost all of our thousands of plants from seeds, by hand, with love, in a local beloved, biodynamic greenhouse. We only sell our own home-grown nursery stock. Check out more about our history and our products HERE! We are grateful to grow these plants for you.
