Seeing the Village as it stands today, one might wonder how it all began. In the 1970's Levi and Amanda Yoder sold their farm in Nappanee, Indiana and moved to Sarasota, Florida. On a whim, they decided to invest their savings on a tiny restaurant located on Main Street. Levi had a heart for people that created lasting connections and Amanda's second nature was good home cooking. Yoder's quickly became a local town favorite.
