Trying to make good environmental decisions

In a business that celebrates the future we try - whenever possible - to leave the smallest footprint we can. This year we are refinishing all of our classic folding wooden chairs versus buying new ones (we hope you like how they look below - we do!).  We are now confirmed to plant 1000 pine trees and 1000 cedar trees in areas of our farm identified (by us) as the best possible areas to reforest.  Its a 2 acre area near our farm pond.  We also realized it was time to replace our natural gas furnance in the Inn.  Rather than burn more natural gas we opted for what has worked so well for us in the Studio (one of our prep areas) - we will be installing 9 heat exchange systems throughout the Inn.  Definitely a more expensive option it will shrink our farm's carbon footprint.  Along with our 4th year commitment to Bullfrog Power, our Inn will produce no greenhouse gases when either heating or cooling starting in May of this year. 

We would like to think we are in a business with some empathy and action toward a cleaner future...hoping you agree.
