Our Rural Refuge

In 2020, we pooled some family resources to purchase a 10-acre property just south of Elma, Washington.  Situated at the end of a rural road and surrounded by State DNR forest land, this small farm boasts level and sloping pastures, a large barn, and a small horse arena.   We are working towards a carbon neutral micro farm that produces not only food, but most or all of its own electricity via solar and wind generation.  There is a two-story house with a separate guest suite, and my father’s new house next door was finished in early 2023.

Hesselridge Farm is ideal for largeish outdoor get togethers. In inclement weather, the barn makes a great gathering space, and the house has a large covered upper deck with views of the mountains and plenty of room for socializing.

We also have . . .

  • Yard Games (cornhole, bocce, etc.)
  • Disc Golf–we have four disc golf targets on the property that we can move around and set up a mini-course!
  • Great camping spots, for those who want to pitch a tent

  • Fire pit–should things last into the wee hours
  • Plenty of indoor crash space
  • Forest trail hikes right behind the house
  • Drum circle, anyone?  It’s pretty remote out here….  We have drums!
  • Lots of musical instruments lying around
  • Rocking chairs and nice views

We hope you can join us
at one of our parties, or perhaps for dinner or a game night!
