Lora Lea Misterly
For thirty-six years Rick and Lora Lea Misterly have been living the Slow Life, growing Quillisascut Farm™. They started out with a bare piece of ground; gradually over time they built a home, a farmstead, a cheese business and a school to share their love for all things farm to table.
Their greatest discovery is that the best seasoning for both a delicious meal and a splendid life is to share with friends. We invite you to look around our website, try our cheese, or join us for a workshop where we can share the stories of our journeys through life!
Giveaway: I’m so excited to give away this signed copy of “Chefs on the Farm: Recipes and Inspiration from the Quillisascut Farm School of the Domestic Arts.” I purchased this copy and had both Lora Lea and Karen sign it for one lucky winner. Go to our Facebook or Instagram and find the post with the Chefs on the Farm book cover post and comment with your favorite nugget of wisdom from this episode.
Something unique is happening at Quillisascut™, placing this tiny goat-cheese farm—named for a nearby creek—at the forefront of a national movement known as ‘sustainable food.’ —The Seattle Times
