The SingleThread Farm is located on five acres between the Russian River and the historic San Lorenzo Ranch in Healdsburg, California. Farmed by Head Farmers Katina Connaughton and brother Vince Rothermund, along with the SingleThread Farm team, the property consists of a greenhouse, shade structures, loamy fields, chicken coops, an heirloom fruit orchard, olive trees, bee hives, and a cattle paddock all surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Chardonnay vines. The farm supplies vegetables, fruit, herbs, flowers, honey, eggs, and olive oil to our restaurant kitchen.

The Nagatani Family of Iga, Japan are 8th generation master potters who produce all of the various donabe (earthenware pots) used at SingleThread Farms as well as many of our dishware pieces, vases, and serving vessels. Each piece is hand made using the porous, fossil rich clay found in Iga.

The historic kilns of Iga are designated as a "tangible cultural property".

Author and owner of Toiro Kitchen, Naoko Moore, shares the donabe of Iga with the world and curates many of the collections at SingleThread Farms. 

Restaurant and furniture design was thoughtfully executed by the award winning firm AvroKo and their sister company Good Shop. 

Artisan knife makers Luke Snyder and David Van Wyk of Bloodroot Blades in Athens, Georgia produced all of our knives using wood from our farm, the Sonoma Coast, and a cherry tree from their property. The blades were forged from a 1968 VW sway bar and the brass detail comes from a former clarinet factory. 

The Yamanaka lacquerware artisans of Ishikawa Prefecture are famous for their incredible quality and detail. The small group of Yamanaka artisans known as Kihachi Kobo, produced all of the lacquerware for SingleThread Farms over a one year period, using hand made tools and preserving the natural beauty of the wood grain.
