Seed & Spoon at Husky Meadow Farms

Seed & Spoon occupies a unique space – situated in the less-travelled and pristine Northwest corner
– it is at once an organic working farm and a place where a lucky few can come for weekend and
mid-week stays in charming accommodations. Beginning May and continuing through the end of
October, Tracy and her team welcome up to ten guests (five parties of two) for farm stays. Seed &
Spoon is all about the people who want to really share their deep knowledge of food and farming, a
place where the food they grow is transformed by chef and guests alike into meals that are delicious
and fill the soul, and where friendships are made and sustained, because there just isn’t anything
else quite like it. Guests participate in activities based on a specific theme such as discovering wild
edibles, creating a kitchen garden, homesteading, or other activities that naturally take place on a
farm at any given time.
