July at Bliss is…blissful. You can hear, see, smell, and taste the life all around us in the most delightful ways; the grounds and surrounding mountains are lush with greenness. The songbirds wake us up with sweet melodies, and the organic gardens are teeming with pollinators and bearing fruits. The flow of guests coming to Bliss Farm and Retreat to practice, relax, and to be present add to the fullness of our summer season.
One of the truest delights of the season? Nourishing guests with the abundance of summertime offerings from the Bliss farm and gardens. The freshness and flavors of freshly harvested, organic foods can take people by surprise and transform their entire lives. We don’t ever tire of providing this service.
Here’s an inventory of the fresh, delicious foods we’re growing and enjoying with retreat groups and private guests this season.
Our sweet tribe of goats is producing delicious milk. Kelly is currently working on making goat cheese and yogurt from this nourishing, healthy goodness.
Fruits + Vegetables
The garden produce is harvested moments before it is prepared!
San Marzano tomatoes
Popping with flavor and bursting with nutritional and medicinal benefits, fresh herbs are an integral part of our food philosophy.
Majestic blooms are growing throughout the grounds and are cut to make fresh flower arrangements. Right now we have an abundance of Brown Eyed Susan, Oak Leaf Hydrangeas and regular Hydrangeas.
From farm to table…
