About Us

THE COCKTAIL FARM:

The Simple Goodness Cocktail Farm is, as far as we can tell, the world’s first exclusive cocktail farm. Here we grow a variety of herbs, edible flowers, fruits, and vegetables with one goal in mind: make delicious drinks. Located on 10 acres in Buckley, WA, the farm was purchased in the Spring of 2013 by Venise and Ross Cunningham. The garden acres are devoted to growing for Simple Goodness Sisters products such as Simple goodness Sisters drink syrups, the Cocktail Farm Club membership boxes, and the Simple Goodness Sisters Soda Shop menu. The farm uses sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices, including using good old fashioned hard labor and plastic mulch rather than chemical pesticides and weed killers in the fields.

OUR #FARMTOBAR SYRUPS: SIMPLE GOODNESS SISTERS SYRUPS BRING YOU THE TASTIEST POSSIBLE DRINKS AT HOME, SIMPLY.

Farmed in the Pacific Northwest, Simple Goodness Sisters syrups capture the intense, pure flavors of a season and naturally preserve them. We grow the majority of the ingredients for the syrups on our family farm in Buckley, WA, and source whatever we can’t grow with intention, supporting others using ethical growing practices. The syrups are made from scratch in small batches in Washington state using recyclable packaging.

With the greatest respect to the ingredients we toil over, the syrups begin on the Cocktail Farm and head to the kitchen at the Soda Shop, where an infusion of whole fruits, herbs, and spices is added to organic cane sugar and water. Infused with exact timing for maximum flavor, the syrups are deeply flavorful and nuanced, showcasing the unique subtleties of all ingredients. No preservatives, dyes, concentrates, or other additives are ever used to make our products. Our respect for our time-honored craft is evident in each bottle of pure and delicious syrup. Simple Goodness Sisters syrups are a true simple syrup, with a 50/50 mix of water and sugar, so that they may be easily substituted in hundreds of classic cocktail recipes calling for simple syrup, sugar cubes, or grenadine.

COCKTAIL FARM CLUB: A CSA FOR COCKTAILS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

Enliven your drink routine by bringing the Simple Goodness Cocktail Farm to your glass! Imagine you're taking a tour through a bountiful garden, stepping between rows bursting with sweet, savory, floral and herbaceous plants, when you're handed a fragrant cocktail, freshly mixed from those same ingredients. Now imagine having that drink experience from the comfort of your home, guided by sisters Venise, a farmer, and Belinda, a bartender, who grow all natural, preservative-free drink mixers on their 10 acre cocktail farm.

With every Cocktail Farm Club release, you'll experience the best of each season's harvest through micro-batches of our garden to glass mixers and garnishes. You'll also be supporting our family farm at the foothills of Mount Rainier, WA, where we farm using regenerative agriculture practices. The Cocktail Farm Club is our farm's version of a traditional farm share CSA or like a cocktail mixer "wine club." Each release allows for a variety of drink variations, and will include recipes and drink education so you can become a garden to glass mixologist at home.

WANT TO VISIT US? COME TO OUR OFF FARM AGRITOURISM CENTER, THE SIMPLE GOODNESS SODA SHOP:

Our home away from home, the Simple Goodness Soda Shop is a tasting room, a farm to table cafe, and our production headquarters. Just a few miles from our farm, the Soda Shop is the family friendly bar of our dreams. Inhabiting one of the few original historic buildings in Wilkeson, the earliest incorporated town in the state of Washington, the Soda Shop continues the building's 120+ year tradition of serving good people good food and drinks. Come to shop and sample our products in person, and stay for happy hour or dinner!

Here, we take soda fountain classics and craft cocktails and give them a modern day twist, with garden to glass flavors. The casual fare is seasonal, homey, and often doused in syrup. Rhubarb Vanilla Bean margaritas and Lemon Herb gin fizzes share a menu with Huckleberry Spruce Tip milkshakes, Marionberry Mint sundaes, hot, melty panini sandwiches slathered in our seasonal pesto, and snack boards laden with local cheeses and house made pickles, jams and spreads. We grow as much as we can to support our menu at the Soda Shop on the Simple Goodness cocktail farm, and source more from local growers and makers such as Fantello Farmstead Creamery, Four Elements Farm, Hideaway Brewing, Beecher's Cheese, Olympia Provisions and more. Bring your families to enjoy our open seating, big outdoor dining yard with games (dog friendly), friendly atmosphere and warm hospitality.
