Ken Fulk’s new Wine Country hangout is a farm-forward, plant-based gathering place for arty folk

Little Saint — an outpost of creative director Ken Fulk’s San Francisco-based nonprofit Saint Joseph’s Arts Foundation — fittingly opened in Healdsburg on Earth Day in April as wine country’s new farm-forward, community-minded gathering place for art, music and plant-based cuisine. Alongside permanent installations from local artists, Fulk has curated warm, inviting spaces within the award-winning modern grange building. Vintage pieces and custom textiles herald the venue’s agrarian roots, from the farm stand and provisions to dining spaces and lounge areas where guests can enjoy live music and film screenings. Kyle and Katina Connaughton, co-owners of SingleThread Farm (Sonoma’s only restaurant with three Michelin stars), oversee Little Saint’s wine shop, bar, cafe and plant-based restaurant through their hospitality group, Vertice. “The hope is that it becomes a real gathering place for the community,” says Fulk. 25 N.
