We purchased this property in 2013 from a family that owned it most of the 20th century. We fell in love with the woods and meadows and have been working very hard to repair buildings and plan a sustainable farm and orchard producing fruits, roots, nuts and berries (hence the name "bear food"). As educators, we want one component of the plan to feature experimenting, teaching, learning and hands-on workshops in sustainable living systems and methods. We host visits and work days for a local high school sustainability club, and are hoping to expand on that. We would like our cabin to be a year-round retreat destination for local educators and a meeting place for the local cycling community. Camping naturally fits our plan, giving people access to some nature therapy just a 10 minute drive from town. Our neighbor is a national champion disc golfer and has built his own full disc golf course on property we sold him. If you play, the course is very nice and we could arrange a camp and golf package. Our location is the gateway to the dirt roads of rural Washtenaw County, offering endless miles of low-traffic biking adventure.
