small local vendors. In the effort to provide a
healthy space, she removed all the fluorescent
and LED lights and replaced them with antique
fixtures that use incandescent bulbs; installed
a reverse osmosis water system that filters out
harmful chemicals and particulates in the water;
cooks all food in ceramic coated pots and
pans; all plant garbage is composted by a local
organic gardener; buys organic and non-GMO
ingredients for all recipes; and made certain that
there is no microwave on the premises. "Our
staff is over the top wonderful! As a group, their
creativity is our collective energy. They believe
in our mission and have taught me a valuable
life lesson. If you hire creative, open-minded
people and you allow them the space to create,
positive results happen. If you box in a creative
mind, you have a listless, passive staff that is
looking for the exit ramp."
Martie and Joel are very committed to the
community they serve. They know the farmers
where the vegetables, fruit, and meat are grown
and harvested. Many early mornings are spent
traveling to those farms to pick up the ingredients

for the daily specials. They feel strongly that it is
important to source from local providers. They
also recognize that in the dead of winter that
may become more difficult, but the effort to
maintain fresh and organic will remain.

the third session is with a local farmer, who
will present a talk on the science and religion
of soil. Our Farmhouse Facebook page and
website will provide more information on
dates, times, and further information.

The Farmhouse Kitchen will be transformed
to the Farmhouse Classroom this fall. Martie
lights up as she says that the reason for the
Farmhouse was twofold. First to serve fresh
food that is seasonally inspired and second to
give the community a location and resource
for health and wellness education. "We intentionally close the cafe at 3 as the evenings
are devoted to Community gatherings and
health and wellness programs. The topics
for those programs will be unfolding in early
September." She says, "Joel and I are committed
to bringing people and topics together that
positively impact a healthy lifestyle." The first
classroom evening will address the needs of
children with sensitivities/allergies; the second
is a discussion group with a chiropractor, a
naturopath, and a family practice doctor, who
also has a degree in integrative medicine; and

Whoever said you can't teach an old dog
new tricks? Martie is a firm believer that the
trials and tribulations of your life can lead to
positive results and an opportunity to utilize
hidden talents. Martie fondly says, "I want to
live like my mother; I want to live each and
every day until the day I die; I want that life
to have purpose and be of service to others.
That is what keeps you young!" n
