SMALLER EVENTS

With plantings of more than 200 trees since purchasing the property in 2017, the owners are committed to preserving the last remaining 2+ acres of what was once a vast 3,200-acre homesite/farmland. The gardens paint a magical setting located in and around the farmhouse estate.

The garden offers the perfect place to hold an intimate wedding with a decorated pergola, casual picnic seating, cozy firepit seating, and cigar lounge, or use the space as an empty slate for multiple purposes.
