Rick and JoAnn have been a team since 2005 when they met…fell in love and began their extraordinary journey. In 2007 they bought an 18-acre homestead just 2 miles from the Coffeehouse which is known as ‘The Martyn House’. The Martyn House is an Artist Residency and Mountain Retreat the perfect getaway for those seeking a truly unique experience in extraordinary dwellings. The Farm was the inspiration to create a community centric coffeehouse in 2012, located in a meticulously restored 1940’s building in downtown Ellijay, GA
