Dovetail Farms & Vineyard
"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of a simple life." ~ John Burroughs
Dovetail Farms & Vineyard is the result of a lifelong plan with a singular focus on living simply and living well. We started this endeavor back in 1996 when we bought a beautiful farm with a hundred year history. The family before us farmed the land in the late 1800s. Our vineyard is planted in their backyard and our cows roam the pastures where they tended their livestock.
We knew that we wanted to improve the land and run a business that used the land's resources sustainably, but it took us a few years to get our lives to the point where we could jump in with both feet. We didn't know anything about farming when we started, and there are many days when we feel we've learned very little since. The land and the climate always seem to keep one step ahead of us - but the challenges are the spice of life. Kit is in charge of the cows, Suzanne manages the grapes, and we are both woodworkers and tinkerers at heart.
We are doing the things that make us happy. The combination of product offerings may make sense only to us, but we eat well and have a lot of fun in the process. If we can help you find the same sense of peace and wellness by sharing the fruits of our labors with you, all the better. Give us a call, we would like for you to get to know us and our farm.
