When to come:
The daylilies bloom from June through September. Peak season lasts from late July through August. It is breath-taking to behold the main six acre field in full bloom. June is also delightful, with the subtler shades of the Siberian Iris and the intensity of the early yellow shaded daylilies. Visitors are welcome to wander along the grass paths which meander through our gardens.

Before you come:
If you want to pick up a large order, please call in advance, so we can have it ready when you get here. There is a map to help guide you through the winding Vermont roads. Our Season Calendar is shown below. Peak season we will be open seven days a week.

Besides Daylilies:
We grow many different species and varieties of Iris. We are now offering an ever increasing selection of perennials, in addition the our extensive daylily collection.

Blueberries:
We maintain over four hundred high bush blueberries in three patches. Pick your own from mid July through August. There are at least six varieties which are organically grown and delicious.

Discovering Nature:
In the woods and fields, the farm also harbors various wildlife habitats and natural plantings. You'll findf rog and fish ponds, occupied bird houses, rock gardens, bog plantings, border collies, a rare stand of northern bamboo and more. There are tables with umbrellas and benches for your picnics.


In just corner of one of our beds the amazing diversity of daylilies is exhibited. Talls, eyed, reds and differant seasons all crowded together.

Some of the most beautiful blooms are not flowers. Anwyn and friends race the Border Collies down the field.

Daylilies, Siberian Iris and other perennials surround the sign to our entrance. It's easy to miss us on this quiet Vermont backroad, so keep a sharp eye out!
