Quaint country charm. It’s a great place to come with friends and family. You can spend a few hours or a whole day viewing the gardens and nursery. The Farmhouse Gift Shop is a must stop for unique gifts.

Some areas are wheelchairs accessible. Mostly the gardens. I don't know about the Curio Gardens where the farm house is located.

No there wasn’t an entrance fee. We had our car parked at their winery but I don’t think they charged for parking either.
