Sustainable Living: Jessie Creek Winery

We had the honor to visit the beautiful Jessie Creek Winery and Inn in Cape May during our travel through New Jersey. The owner Dr. Bruce Morrison talked to us about the wineries mission and their award winning wines. He also informed us about their sustainable ground keeping practices and how the winery plants native plants to invite native organisms and insects and promote a healthy environment for the Monarch Butterflies.

Jessie Creek Winery was awarded by the Cape May Chamber of Commerce for their aid and contribution to the The Wetlands Institute for wetlands conservation projects throughout the county.

The owners gave us a tour of their beautiful Inn at Jessie Creek that the couple lovingly restored. The Inn is listed on Airbnb and can be rented also for special events. Jessie Creek Winery is a great place for any events including weddings and birthdays.

The East Coast #Vanlife Tour Road Trip Part 2

Our #Vanlife itinerary from Florida to New York Part 2 brought us from Maryland to Delaware and New Jersey. After spending a couple months in our travel trailer in Florida during the Spring, it was time to get going and living on the road again! Our road trip from Florida to Maine and back included cruising up along the coast to New York and New Jersey where we’ll be taking a work break for a few weeks and spend time with family before moving onwards to the North!

On this road trip we were primarily boondocking (free dry camping), we slept in our van while being parked in different city parking spots and on several small farms and wineries through the Harvest Hosts program.

In Cape May we visited the beautiful Jessie Creek Winery and Inn where we had the honor to speak to the owners and get a private tour of the Inn which was recently restored and lovingly decorated.

The owner Dr. Bruce Morrison told us about the winery and their eco-friendly and sustainable farming practices that help prevent extinction of the Monarch Butterflies and promote native plants, insects and organisms. The winery also donates its profits of three of their award winning wines for the local wetlands conservation.

We had such a great time at Jessie Creek Winery and enjoyed their delicious wines and beautiful views before having a restful and quiet sleep next to their vineyards.

Jessie Creek Winery is a member of the Harvest Hosts Program and we loved staying at this winery and other farms that we visited during our trip. It is always a great and unique experience.

We also had an interview with farmer Marissa of Whippoorwill Farms in South Carolina and learned from her about their eco-friendly, organic and sustainable farming practices and how they raise their pigs, chickens and rabbits humanely and with free range. Check out the video interview here.

Whippoorwill Farms is a member of the Harvest Hosts Program and we loved staying on this and other farms on our trip. It is always great to stay at a farm and we always have a peaceful night and it is a unique experience.

For two nights we stayed in an Airbnb in the Outer Banks in North Carolina that we fled to because of some very aggressive mosquitoes that tried to eat us alive even with the van doors and windows shut, but they found their way inside through a small crack at the side door frame.

We are so excited to be back in our van and living the simple van life and exploring all the beauty that the East Coast has to offer!

Sustainable Living: Whippoorwill Farms SC – Sustainable Organic Farm

Whippoorwill Farms is a sustainable organic farm located in South Carolina. We had the honor to speak to Farmer Marissa Paykos about her organic and sustainable farm. She shared about her life from starting the farm with her husband James and daughter Ellie, to growing organic vegetables and using sustainable and humane practices to feed and raise pigs, rabbits and free-range chickens.

She talked about her ways to support the community in her area, how she reuses and recycles materials and how the farm is reducing their carbon footprint and waste.

She also shared valuable insight on how she utilizes social media and modern technology for promoting the farm and its products to increase her sales by marketing directly to her customers and selling at the local farmers markets. We learned so much from our talk with Marissa and truly enjoyed our visit with her lovely family and their animals.
