What an interesting mission! I really enjoyed walking through the clean, organized gift shop. They have an amazing selection of seeds, gardening tools, and books. The grounds are just gorgeous -- gardens, trails, barns, animals. Definitely worth the drive out of town.

There are many seeds and plants not available anywhere else. Garden supplies, crafts, home goods, decor and a beautiful location make this a must stop if you are in the area. You can also walk the grounds to enjoy the walking paths and the property.

If you have time stop at the Seed Savers exchange for a visit. This organization was founded to preserve seeds and to protect seed diversity. There is a nice demonstration garden and gift shop that is well worth the time for a stop.

Even if you do not garden, this is an interesting place to explore. They offer heritage seeds for sale, but there are many other items for sale as well, such as dried beans, crafts, fresh garlic, etc. There are also miles of hiking trails around...More
