The Helm’s purchased the property in 2017. Being visionaries and entrepreneurs at heart, Ken and Debbie began a family-owned and operated winery and special events venue in beautiful Lancaster County.
Ken’s skills as a contractor, in addition to winemaking, afforded him the ability to construct a truly custom, beautifully handcrafted bank barn that allows an elegant yet rustic experience that can only be described as simple country elegance. With hard work and appreciation of the outdoors, Ken and Debbie’s vision grew, bringing sustainable agriculture and agri-tourism full circle by opening the first winery to the Little Britain area of Quarryville, Pa.
