The property at Miramar Farms was first settled in the late-1800’s. Jayne and Mark Battey purchased the property in 1994, and after restoring the 1906 house, began to rehabilitate the 11-acre property. While various stories of row crops, flowers, horse stables and nursery activities have been shared with us by neighbors and friends, the land was left fallow for over 30 years before returning to agricultural production in 2012.
The farming aspect of Miramar Farms is a continuing work in progress. Today, we grow a wide range of vegetables, herbs and flowers, along with apples and pears. Our goal is to grow the majority of produce and herbs we provide to our guests on site, along with the cut flowers we use in the barn and patio areas. Depending on the time of year, you’ll find a variety of about 15 fruits or vegetables, along with eggs, flowers, and honey from our apiary.
Throughout your visit, we invite you to take a walk and learn with us about balancing the natural resources of the property alongside the growing farm operation.
