Bainbridge Island Destinations: Bay Hay and Feed

Bay Hay and Feed on Bainbridge IslandHoward Block and Ce-Ann Parker fell in love with the old building in 1979 and bought it. Fresh from the sale of their natural food store in New Hampshire, Howard & Ce-Ann pictured a New England general store that sold hay and grain, tools and farm supplies. Soon their horticultural backgrounds led them to add a greenhouse, plants and organic garden supplies. All the while they were repairing, repainting, and renewing the old Rodal Building circa 1912 that they named Bay Hay and Feed. With the helping hands of friends and family, the steady support of Island customers and the constant encouragement of the Rolling Bay neighborhood, Bay Hay began to grow and grow. A strong community spirit already existed, but a destination to walk or bike, a place to meet, greet, get coffee or a bite to eat, are important in a community.

The Bay Hay Shirt (rows of farm animals in a multitude of color combos) took on a life of its own in the early eighties. They made their way around the world and back to Rolling Bay in the form of photos snapped in the wildest places, sweet family reunions and class trips. A sense of home grew out of the Bay Hay shirt, nostalgic to high school seniors, college freshman and out-of town relatives.

Bay Hay and Feed on Bainbridge IslandAbbie and Teague were raised in the store, working and playing alongside neighbors, staff and customers. Like a beehive, Bay Hay has always been the center of continuous activity dawn to dusk – new projects built out of old projects, merchandise coming in and going out, plans devised and revised, new staff and customers arriving, old staff and customers returning. Spring chicks and greenhouse starts, harvest fairs and storm preparations, dogs sniffing for treats, gardeners looking for advice, all add up to the buzz of Bay Hay.

We hadn’t made a full album together since 1985, but as you get older, you realize you’re not immortal and you’ve only got so much time.” Dave and Phil Alvin may have set out to honor the legacy of Big Bill Broonzy with this record, but in the process, they solidified their own as one of roots music’s most exceptional duos. Admission: $26/$38

Bainbridge Island Destinations: Heyday Farm Store and Historic Pederson Farm

Heyday Farm Store

The Heyday Farm store is open Mondays through Saturdays, 10 am – 6 pm at Lynwood Center

All food has a story. The people behind Heyday Farm till the soil so that the story of their food is rich and savory, healthy and satisfying. It’s a historic, environmental, neighborhood and family story that expresses their deep commitment to the place they call home and a healthy future for everyone.

Heyday Farm is a family-run, 25-acre sustainable and historic farm on Bainbridge Island. Heyday grows and sell farm fresh food and offers authentic farm experiences, cooking classes, field to table events, and professional and family retreats for the Bainbridge Island community, and visitors near and far who want to understand, experience and celebrate the region and the food it produces.

heyday-farm-bainbridge-islandHeyday Farm includes a farmhouse, farm kitchen, micro-creamery, gardens, greenhouses, and pastures for animals. Not an “event center,” Heyday is an authentic working farm that strives to increase the number of people who honor the land and the sustenance it provides. Heyday eggs, chicken, cheese, yogurt, pork, beef, vegetables and fruit are available for purchase at their Farm Store at Lynwood Center. Our food is also sold at establishments around town including Pane d’ Amore and Restaurant Marché.

The farmers behind Heyday respect the land and its limits and grow food of the highest integrity, taste and quality. Their cutting-edge systems include crop and animal rotation, solar power, biodiesel, water recapture and composting to conserve, reclaim and regenerate resources. The name “Heyday” comes from a commitment to increase collective nourishment just as farms did back in their heydays.
