Adjacent to the dining room is a newly remodeled kitchen that is very spacious and fully equipped for you to prepare your own meals. The kitchen has two ovens, a 4-burner electric stove top range, a dishwasher, a microwave oven, and a full-size refrigerator. In addition, there are small electrical appliances including a coffee maker, toaster, and blender.
The kitchen is supplied with a wide variety of pots, pans, baking dishes, and utensils. We hope that you will find everything that you need to prepare your favorite meals. One guest commented that our kitchen had more utensils and gadgets than she had in her kitchen at home!
We stock the kitchen with a few basic cooking ingredients such as flour, sugar, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and about a dozen seasonings. If our hens are laying eggs, we will leave up to a dozen eggs in the refrigerator for your use. (And none of them will have white shells!) Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate mix are also provided.
Meal preparation is up to you. The Food Pavilion is a major grocery store on Highway 20 that offers a full array of food. Also, the Woolley Market is on the main street in Sedro-Woolley and offers specialty and locally-sourced foods. During the summer, there are farmers’ markets that offer fabulous produce. Also, there are a number of restaurants in Sedro-Woolley if you prefer not to cook.
Because the farm has a well as the source of water, we provide bottled water for you in case you prefer to use it.
Due to our septic system, we do not have a garbage disposal. However, we have Polly (our pet pig), goats, and our chickens that typically love the leftover scraps from your meal preparation. We provide a canister for those scraps, sort through them, and then feed them to the appropriate critters. Polly would like you to know that watermelon, cantaloupe, and banana peels are her favorite snacks.
Also, we try to recycle as much as possible. Recycling bins are placed in the carport for your use.
In the back corner of the kitchen, a washer and dryer are ready to receive any wet or soiled clothing. We provide laundry detergent so there can be clean clothes in the morning!
