This beautiful farm is what remains of the original Coubeaux family homestead. About three acres are the fields, the property includes critical bird habitat and orchard. Just a 5-minute walk from the lake, the cottonwood forest has grown up around the old cherry orchard and barn and several very old Douglas fir and cedar trees provide more habitat for wildlife. The heritage Finnish tongue and groove cedar barn is the oldest structure in the Sorrento area.
Over the years, the Sorrento Centre Farm has nurtured a working vegetable and fruit farm while continuing to provide important habitat for a number of local bird species. During the summer and fall, we've offered farm gate sales and a small market at Spes Bona. Our farm has been:
"Be a gardener. Dig a ditch, toil and sweat and turn the earth upside down and seek the deepness and water the plants in time. Continue this labor and make sweet floods to run and noble and abundant fruits to spring. Take this food and drink and carry it to God as your true worship."
For several seasons we used permaculture and regenerative farming techniques to restore soil health, to grow fresh, naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
