Spring Open House May 11th & 12th, 2018

Demonstrations at 11am, 1pm, 3pm

Spring Open House is set for May 11th & 12th, 2018

Mother’s Day falls on May 13th this year. To help celebrate, we’d like to invite you, your friends, your mother, grandmother down to our 2018 Annual Spring Open House where you can walk the woodland trails full of spring wildflower blossoms along the banks of the Rockcastle River. 


In addition, we’ll be on hand throughout the day to share great new ideas to make your garden the best ever this year. We’ve done some freshening up, the store is full of new items and Momma is ready to greet you for a brand new season! 


Val Schirmer from the famous Three Toads Farm, is planning to have the very first glorious early peony blooms, perfect for Mothers Day! Val will also be conducting demos on: How to grow your own cut flower patch (yep, you can grow like the Toads!) and How to use peonies in fresh-as-springtime bouquets and tablescape. Demos will be at 11am, 1pm and 3pm both Friday and Saturday.


Plan on eating here with the fabulous Local Feed Food Truck. They'll be serving up Black Hawk Farm’s beef meatballs (pasta or hoagie), Spring pasta salad, Kale Caesar salad, and Tiramisu!


We are also thrilled to have Smokin' Aces Coffee Co. joining us again! David Ryan Barnes and his crew source specialty grade coffees from all over the world and roast them in a way that allows them to express their own inherent qualities


Note: Don’t trust GPS as it takes you to the wrong place. We are located off I-75 at exit 49 on US 25, or a leisurely drive down US 25 south past Livingston on the left just before the Laurel County bridge.
