A Note from our Founder

My husband, Doug Miller, and I moved to five acres of pasture in Montgomery County in 2003. Together we designed a long-term plan of increasing the biodiversity of the property with native plantings, trees, and a no-till garden. We built The Juniper Spoon kitchen in 2010, a welcoming, bright space with tall ceilings and window views to the woods. Kitchen scraps are composted and returned to the gardens as fertilizer. Daily trips to the garden give us a moment to breathe fresh air and snip some herbs or gather asparagus. Although the gardens don’t provide nearly the quantity we need, they do provide us with a sensibility of the seasons, an appreciation for good soil, and gratitude for the hard work of our partnering farmers. Together with our two girls and a smattering of cats and dogs, we value the beauty of our place, our community, and how they sustain us, both physically and mentally. We are so grateful. -Lali Hess
