About Bluff Bottom

Hi, we’re Hayden and Taylor, and we’d like to invite you into our home and our little world.

We own and operate a small cut flower and grain farm nestled up against a big ol’ limestone bluff (hence, “Bluff Bottom Homestead”). Throw in some chickens, a tiny herd of cows, three kids, big dreams, and a little house and you’re starting to get the picture.

Our goals are to live a life centered around family, live with intention and purpose, be good stewards of all the resources we’ve been blessed with, and to serve others.
