What wonderful folks have visited Ampersand this Spring! Our first Community Homestead day was fun and filled with local families, just as we had hoped. We also received a special visit from the Eastvolds, who brought a new experience of the petroglyphs around the property. Thank you!

Please drop us a line and let us know you are coming!
