The Meadow Garden

Between the Main House, the Old Blacksmith Shop, and the Sanborn Pond was a sheep field that was grazed for many years. In 2018, the Farm team set about planting 7,250 bulbs including Narcissus, Lilium martagon, Chionodoxa, Galanthus, and Eranthus. Later that season Lupine, Poppies, and Cornflower were scattered over the bulbs creating a lovely wildflower meadow.

Over time, the fierce competition of the perennial hay grasses out-competed the annual wildflowers and in 2023 we introduced a variety of native perennials. These perennials, chosen for their robust growth habit and drought tolerance, will create a lovely summer and fall display to provide visual interest after the bang of Daffodil season.
