Goodstone’s fully operative farm with cows, chickens, beehives, and even a llama, provides high-quality produce for their award-winning culinary program. The gardening team meets regularly with the chef to coordinate planting needs designed around seasonal rotation and the farm- to-table culinary program. A variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown in the gardens, orchards, and greenhouses while focusing on sustainable agricultural practices. (In 2022, Goodstone made the decision to eliminate plastic water bottles from its property and implemented Vivreau, a reusable bottle system.) At the countryside resort guests are welcomed to enjoy all the land has to offer including hiking, biking, and canoeing.
