Carpe Diem Farm is the brainchild of Julie Belli, an award winning artisan cheese maker and tireless advocate of using organic practices to cultivate fresh local food. In addition to providing aspiring farmers with incubator plots to try their hands at the land risk-free, Carpe Diem Farm is also home to a farm shop, farm cafe, a classroom, a mixed orchard, greenhouses, and soon, a newly renovated cheese plant and milking room that will produce goat, sheep and cow cheeses, as well as other quality products.
