What We Do
We grow and sell farm fresh food and offer field to table events, cooking classes, and professional and family retreats for our island community and visitors near and far who want to understand, experience and celebrate our region and the food we produce.
Proprietor & Executive Chef
While growing up on the island I always valued the closeness of the community to local farms.
I am a relative newcomer to Bainbridge, moving here recently when my wife and I decided to move to the island to raise our children.
Farm House Manager
As a native Bainbridge Islander I have had the good fortune of enjoying the Island’s bounty as far back as I can remember.
Farm House Sous Chef
I am an East Coast (Connecticut) transplant turned West Coast adventurer.
Farm House Gardener
While growing up in neighboring Poulsbo, I experienced a deep sense of place through playing outside with family and soaking in stories of the history of our community and region.
Farm House Beverage Buyer
I’m an Islander for life. My family moved from Seattle to Bainbridge when I was 5.
I proudly hail from the Great Lakes state of Michigan.
On the Farm
Heyday Farm was founded in 2011, restoring over 25 acres of historic farmland that had been slated for development. In a unique partnership between farmer and landowner and many local and regional contractors, the turn of the century Pederson farmhouse was painstakingly restored and expertly updated harkening back to an era on the Island when farms were “in their heyday.” In 2013, we were honored for this effort by the Bainbridge Island Historic Preservation Commission with a Blakely Award for outstanding historic preservation efforts on the Island.
