Found: Mountain Feed & Farm Supply

Ben Lomond (just a hop, skip, and a jump up Highway 9 from my cottage in Felton) is home to one of my absolute favorite shops - Mountain Feed & Farm Supply. This place is unlike any other nursery/kitchen goods/gift shop/pet store... it might just be the only place like it that I've ever encountered!  We discovered it one day when Dad and Kim were visiting and we were exploring the mountain towns along Highway 9.  It was one of those, "OoO what's that place... PULL OVER!!" moments - and I am so glad we did!

First of all, they have little kitties that live all around the property - I was immediately sold on the place for this fact alone.

...and then I saw they had a kitchen goods shop, and I contemplated moving in.

This shop is packed to the gills with millions of things I wish I could stash into my little cottage kitchen.

I can literally feel my hoarder genes tingling in this place.

The entire staff is incredibly friendly and excited to be there, too.

There's also a gift shop - I did almost all of my Christmas shopping here.  And around Christmas time they were serving hot apple cider... it's like this place is something out of a storybook.

They carry lots of locally made goods - this soap is amazing.  I've used the honey & almond and the lavender... they smell absolutely divine.

Lots of bud vases, bags and hidden treasures...

The majority of the property is a nursery filled with lush plants, unique potting benches made from old wood accented with stained glass windows and many other fun little details...
