Small Acreage Tour 2017-08-30T16:02:34+00:00

Peculiar Ambitions is part of the
Clark County Small Acreage Program’s Farm Tour this Sept 16th!

Every member of our family has their own “Peculiar Ambition” that comes together to create our homestead just south of Lucia Falls in north Battle Ground.

Reenie is a knitter and fiber artist, Ann and Paul are potters and farm animal enthusiasts, and Eve is a landscape designer, dahlia farmer, wild edible plant forager, and owner of www.GardensByEvelyn.com.

Walk an educational “farm trail,” visit farm animals, and learn how we created a small-scale homestead that can be easily maintained by following your creative bliss, enhancing your everyday life with art and farm products. Come see our gas pottery kiln in action and shop in our pottery/art/plant shop.

The drive from Vancouver/Portland to our farm is beautiful, we are located in the foothills of Bells Mountain.
There are many local attractions near us, I made a list for you.

Your gps will bring you right to us.
Our address is 21701 NE Basket Flat Rd. Battle Ground.

Once this road plateaus, driveway will be on the right/south.
