Picnic on the Farmhouse Porch
Bring your own food and enjoy an intimate experience of a private picnic at the farm. When you arrive at the Meandering Meadows, you will be greeted by Farmer Nadia, who will lead you to your table and tell you all about the land and farm. You will then be guided to a serene picnic area positioned on the large farmhouse porch, surrounded pastures and animals. The picnic table was lovingly handcrafted from a tree that was harvested by a local saw mill. Your tablescape will be decorated with flowers, linens, and individual place settings. After you enjoy your food, you will have the opportunity to join our miniature goats in the pasture. They are precious, friendly animals who love a good chin scratch and treats. They may even lay down next to you. You will leave this experience with a refreshed spirit, a light heart, and a smile on your face. We hope that you will have a renewed appreciation for the natural beauty farm life has to offer. This picnic is a great way to celebrate a special moment- anniversaries, birthdays, or simply to reconnect. **Please request date/ time if not listed online** **If you have more than 8 guests in your party, please message us about accommodating your group**

But, what's a southern dinner party without a party favor? You'll bring back a "taste of the south" to your own kitchen, guaranteed. Because we work directly with farms, menus vary.

Immersive Sound Meditation Journey through the Chakras
Join me for the #1 largest Chakra Sound Meditation / Sound Bath in Destin! This experience will be an unforgettable journey into your mind ! We will start with Q&A and deep breathing exercises. After we will offer a grande meditation through sound to unlock unique states of consciousness and relaxation. By addressing the energetic stressors , our nervous and adrenal systems are given an opportunity to recuperate. Gong and Chakra Bowls meditation, a type of Sound therapy, have been around for thousands of years as a way of healing. Multiple tones and overtones build as it is played, creating layers of sounds which can be directly felt by those experiencing it and emotionally it helps to quieten the mind. The gong is said to cut through the ego, leaving a person to be their authentic self. It can help us to come into our neutral, meditative mind. The benefits one can get from being exposed to the tones of the gongs are numerous, yet vary considerably. Most of my clients have been noticing a major improvement in the quality of their sleep, a better ability to cope with stress. Dress in comfortable and warm clothes as you going to be laying down on a mat for the meditation and your body temperature might drop as you relax - we provide a yoga blanket, pillow and a eye pillow. Bring any additional as you wish. Great for Groups, Corporate Teams, Team Building.
