Hello, Lovely! Hollis here, your resident baker, teacher, teal obsessed friend!
I am the Creative Director and Co-Owner at the farm. I am also a mama to 4 littles (all 5 and under!). If you know me, you know I am all over the map on any given day, wearing all.the.hats. I always do my best to show up as much as humanly possible for the people I care about most.
Sometimes, that showing up means a beautiful, made from scratch meal. And sometimes it means Happy Meals. I am a firm believer in doing what works and serves you most in each moment. Less pressure, less guilt.
Just because I know how to make from scratch, doesn’t mean I do all the time. Goodness no! The whole goal is to be able to. Its about you knowing that you can whenever the opportunity or mood arises!
To be able to create and enjoy the delicious results…well, what could be better?!
I cannot wait to spend the summer making with you! It’s going to be the best most delicious summer ever!
