Jon Carloftis Fine Gardens

The Rockcastle River Trading Company is located in the countryside on a rolling plot of 50 acres that is in actuality the lands of the Carloftis family homestead. It may be best to begin with a few quotes from Southern Living magazine. "The Rockcastle River Trading Company is definitely worth the stop" for any traveler visiting the state of Kentucky." Look for this great stop off the interstate (I-75)... Rockcastle River Trading Company invites you to take a break to stop and wonder its gorgeous grounds... Its beautifully landscaped gardens are a touch of Eden.

Make sure to mark your calendars for our annual SPRING OPEN HOUSE May 10th & 11th where we’ll have a few surprises for you to enjoy.
