Located on 1.7 acres of land, Urban Roots Farm and its Airbnb provide the unique opportunity to stay close to downtown Springfield yet feel like you’re in a secluded setting surrounded by vegetable gardens and greenhouses. Before heading out the front door, peep into the stylish kitchen Melissa and Adam Millsap have assembled. The space's white shelves and subway tile backsplash illuminate a space bereft of windows and natural light. The exposed shelves appealed to the Millsaps because they’re easy to clean and highlight the colorful dishes and bowls. Blue cabinets bring a welcome splash of color while maintaining the bright feel of the kitchen.
