2. “Warwick Farm”
We wanted to find plants that together provide blooms from February to November. As a result, we have tried over 460 cultivars among 200 species, and have planted almost all of it ourselves.
3. “Maple Hill Farm”
A waterfall meanders between two stone walls draped with climbing hydrangea. The banks and pond are planted with perennials, specimen trees, and water plants.
Enjoy our extensive vegetable garden.
4. “The Plant School”
It could be said that we didn’t know when to stop! After twenty-five years, we are still buying, transplanting, dividing, designing, and dreaming of how we can create our “Heaven on Earth.”
5. “New Pond Farm Education Center”
Actress Carmen Mathews transformed her 102-acre property into an environmental education center and working farm that features rolling pastures, plus perennial, herb and vegetable gardens for visitors to enjoy.
Lush pachysandra, Elizabethan Parterres, sweeping nepeta, and fragrant thyme spilling over stonewalls filled with busy little bees are just a few elements that will surround you while strolling the grounds of this circa 1723 home.
7. “Turtle Rock Farm”
On this eleven-acre property you’ll find a waterfall, pond, perennial beds, specimen trees, and a kitchen garden with one-hundred-year-old German Iris.
8. “Plum Row”
Created over twenty years ago, our garden continues to evolve and mature. It is a joyful journey with rich rewards and we are happy to share it with you.
