This garden is open twice this year: May 4 and September 21.

The Hay, Honey Farm's extensive gardens have been carefully added to the landscape since 1989 in a naturalistic manner, with a respect for the history and topography of the site, and consistent with the broader surrounding atmosphere of Pleasant Valley. The plant collections reflect the diverse interests of the owners and the resident horticulturists and are set within a dwarf conifer/spring bulb garden, a walled perennial border, hosta gardens, meadow, hayfields, a kitchen garden, a woodland garden of rhododendron and companion wildflowers, and a mostly native wild garden, home to a growing assortment of songbirds.

Garden Extra:
As a part of the May 4 Open Day, botanical artist Marilyn Foehrenbach will be on site for a show and sale of her work, including popular framed prints, totes and cards. You can preview Marilyn’s work at, and while a wide selection will be available, pre-orders placed before April 26 can be picked up at Open Day. 10% of all proceeds will benefit the Garden Conservancy.
