Sabina Hitchen

After many years of talking and many months of searching, Hope and her husband found their dream farm early in 2012.  Located near Charlottesville, Virginia, their "farm" used to be a B&B and has one very important feature: a commercial kitchen.  They were sold.  Hope could finally start the bakery that she had been dreaming of for years and their two boys could build forts and go on hikes in the woods to their heart's content. The commercial kitchen has been turned into HQ for the Hudson Henry Baking Co. where Hope happily bakes their Good News Granola and listens to music and NPR.  Life is good.
