As a small farm with a heart for stewardship, we are always learning and growing towards a restorative agriculture. We want our land to be healthier and more fruitful for every year that we farm it. We see soil building and soil health as a foundation for healthy plants and animals. To help us achieve this, we utilize time honored tools such as rotational grazing and cover crops to help us raise good food in natural ways.
The inspiration for Beautiful Day Café is woven into a tapestry rich with lush gardens and small-town cafes. It is more than a nod to the farm-to-table, slow meal and locavore movements – it is a community of neighbors committed to incorporating all of those values into their daily lives. It is equal parts homespun tradition (using the freshest and closest ingredients) and common sense – all mixed up with some fine skills in the kitchen.
The Beautiful Day Cafe seasonal menus are founded in organic practices. Whenever possible we source from local and regional farmers and fair/direct trade cooperatives. Our primary focus is divided between providing healthy, delicious meals (good for the body and the planet) and sharing this information with the community.
A natural extension of the Café is the Green Street Permaculture Garden (adjacent to our building at the intersection of Green and Central.) The foundation for this garden has been meticulously laid by a growing army of volunteers, and when at full production will allow us to fill your plates with our bounty. In the interim, it serves as the classroom where we can practice, and teach, sustainable, natural land practices.
This community of volunteers speaks to a much greater void that Beautiful Day Café is filling. It is so much more than a place to grab a bite to eat. Charolett Knapic and her team of imagineers have built a clubhouse where playing along is encouraged and the community has rallied around the dream with great support.
Beautiful Day Cafe sees itself as a community link for conscious living. We incorporate practices that regenerate wholeness and create purpose in our daily lives throughout the building and management of Beautiful Day Cafe, the Green Street Permaculture Garden, composting sites, hen house, water feature, fireplace, greenhouse and garage.

We are a 5 generation family farm located on the south side of Wichita. Our family had orchards on the same ground from 1872 to 1987 and we started the replanting process back in 2015. We currently grow yellow and white freestone peaches along with tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins. We have monthly Vintage Markets held on the first Saturday of each month and host the South Side Food Truck Rally the same day.
