Your heart cannot help but grow when you visit the Piebird! Sherry and Yan will instantly make you feel like dear friends as soon as you set foot on Piebird property. I confess that part of the reason that we keep going back to the Piebird is because we are looking for an excuse to hang out with Sherry & Yan.
Our visit started with a garden tour (Sherry & Yan are both so knowledgeable when it comes to growing your own food and preparing it). We had a delicious dinner for two that consisted of wraps filled with greens, grains, and tofu and a salad that was an explosion of taste. After dinner we headed outside to visit the goats and the chickens and for a tour of the cabin that they are working hard to finish (it is gorgeous and would be a wonderful place to take your family or if you like more privacy than a b&b offers). We caught up with Sherry while drinking tea and eating rhubarb upside-down cake. Sherry really needs to write her own cookbook! We were then off to bed and before we knew it, it was morning. I loved looking out the window to see Yan planting and the chickens flying around. We chose to hang out with Sherry and Yan while Sherry made us pancakes for breakfast. We spent part of the morning brushing the goats and sitting outdoors. Before we knew it, it was time to head back home. We'll definately be looking for another excuse to visit the Piebird soon (the Piebird picnic perhaps). If you love composting toilets, old bathtubs, tea rooms, goats, vegan cooking, open minds and feeling like you are at home this is the place for you!
