Bainbridge Island Destinations: Heyday Farm Store and Historic Pederson Farm
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 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.
