Owner description: Monches Farm has been a destination for adventurous and discerning gardeners since 1980. This is a specialty perennial nursery that is situated in the scenic rocky hills of south eastern Wisconsin. It sells perennials as well as beautiful one of a kind garden art. I have been to many boutique nurseries in the U.S., but this one is on my top ten list. I think that this would be a great destination place for any gardener visiting the Milwaukee area.

This is a nursery, but I can see why it would be marked as an attraction. They tend to carry more than the average seller, there are chickens on hand to entertain, and it's just a beautiful location near the Kettle Moraine Forest. Anything you want in season, they seemed to have. We enjoyed browsing and ended up loading up our car before we left. The gift shop has LOTS of great ideas. Be sure to allow enough time so you can browse.

Getting here is half the fun. Several rustic roads wind the hilly landscape arriving at the nursery and gift shop. We often see turkey deer and Sandhill cranes on the road coming here.
The grounds display many outdoor sculptures. Perennials are their specialty. The gift shop features vases, potpourri, holiday items etc.
Peacock and chicken will keep kids occupied
