Since 1989, the extensive gardens of The Hay Honey Farm have been carefully added to the landscape 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.
