The garden shop sells lovely and unusual plants. They have live music and craft and vendor shows with a shaded patio and coffee stand. The classes are always... More

Great coffee, fabulous selection of plants, wonderful unique gift items, and a garden that would make the Queen of England happy! Don't miss their wonderful art and craft fairs. The vendors are some of the best in the county, and the art is beautiful! The staff is happy and very happy to help or to leave you alone. I've received... More

What a fun experience to visit Summers Past Farm. It's easy to drive to and easy to walk around. The shopping inside the barn is wonderful. There are hues selections of dried flowers hanging from the rafters to seeds, books and notecards around the room..

I've been to Summers Past many times over the years. Each visit is compelling-- the places is so lovely, it makes you want to sit in one of the chairs, sip some tea and just listen to the quiet of the birds, while soaking in the smells of lavender, or wisteria, or whatever plants are in bloom at that time....

Beautiful grounds, great area for wedding. Lots of plants to take home to brighten up the yard and garden. 2 neat stores, old clountry store, and a candle...etc store. Seems a little far out. But only 3 or 4 miles. You need to pay attention. Turn around at next left and go back, after you pass it up. Lots of... More

Not many people know about this place! It is a great venue to grab a cup of coffee or tea and stroll around. I attended a funeral reception here and have been coming back ever since. They have events from time to time, like wine tasting, but mainly it is a quiet oasis.

Love this place! Two buildings with lovely treasures to pick up - from antique type stuff to locally made gifts. The locale is known for its fairy gardens and there are lots of fairy paraphernalia to be had. There is a nice coffee bar and there are lots of plants to peruse and buy. It isn't a huge place but...

We drive by here all the time and decided to stop today. It was a very nice day and we had some tea on the patio. Nice cool breeze blowing and a very scenic area. They serve coffee and tea, this is a much better place to enjoy these than any starbucks! Worth the stop!
