Kurtwood Farms Cabin

December 21, 2010 § 1 Comment

A few weeks ago I took the ferry over to Vashon Island in the pouring rain to photograph the interiors of the oldest cabin on the island. It was a delightful change of pace from the typical modern interior.

The cabin, a historical landmark, is home to Kurt Timmermeister of Kurtwood Farms. Kurt owned Seattle’s popular Cafe Septieme for almost two decades before selling it a few years ago to focus his energy on the 13 acres of farmland on the island that he has called home for more than 15 years. Today, Kurtwood Farms is a full fledged dairy farm that produces Dinah’s Cheese, a creamy camembert style cheese coveted by local restaurants.

It’s times like these when I wish I was a better writer so that I could more eloquently convey just how interesting and fantastic a place Kurtwood Farms is and just how interesting and cool a guy Kurt is. I hope to return for another visit in the Spring.

Kurt himself is a writer and just finished his first book that’s part memoir and part how-to-start-your-own-farm-instruction-manual entitled “Growing a Farmer: How I Learned to Live Off the Land”.
