If you're interested in ecological sustainability, green living and simply finding a way to live more lightly upon the earth, a visit to the Milkweed Mercantile is a must. This is a straw bale, solar- and wind-powered, super-comfortable, four-bedroom inn at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. The Mercantile offers weekend stays, organic meals, a variety of seminars and possibly the best pizza you've ever had.
Our cafe features an open kitchen so you can watch as we craft delicious meals from scratch, using local and organic ingredients. Enjoy a drink from our bar (26 kinds of craft beer and a great selection of Missouri wine) while relaxing on our screened-in, wraparound porch. Since we are located in the gently rolling hills of rural northeastern Missouri, the skies are filled with stars you can only dream of when living in the city. Soak in the hot tub; read a book from our extensive library; awaken to birdsongs.
Seminars range from canning and food preservation to raising chickens. We look forward to seeing you soon.
