GARDENSGorman Heritage Farm’s gardens are an immersive experience for the visitor. Set upon the beautiful backdrop of our hillsides and farm meadow, they invite you to enjoy and learn from them.
Our gardens include:
- Market Garden
- Flower Cutting Garden
- Children’s Garden
- Rental Garden
Our market garden is the epicenter of our produce operation. This is where you come to see how vegetables are grown using organic practices. Our garden workshops through the winter and spring seasons utilize these gardens as a demonstration area as well. It is half acre size provides produce for CSA shares and produce sold in our Farm Shop. We also have a hoophouse that is utilized for growing greens for harvest through the winter months. You will most likely see our gardeners working the land when visiting. Stop by and see what they’re doing as they’d like to share what they know, because that’s why we are here!
Flower Cutting Garden
Our flower cutting garden offers many varieties of flowers through three seasons. The colors, scents and textures of our cutting garden vary just as the pale blues of the spring sky develop into the rich azure of the summer and on into the crisp clear jeweled sky of autumn. You can choose to buy per stem at .50 cents per stem or sign up for a cutting garden subscription for $45.00. This includes 24 stems per visit, for a total of 10 visits! Half subscriptions are also available.
Our children's garden invites the visitor to see, touch, taste and hear what happens in our gardens. In addition to our sensory beds, some of our volunteers take care of beds that add floral beauty, showcase vegetables from other nations and attract native birds. We also have a children's play corner that includes a playhouse and children-sized garden tools!
Our rental garden is comprised of separate plots which are rented out on a seasonal basis. This is a great resource if you don’t have the ability to grow produce where you live. Not only are you growing food in a beautiful location, but you will be among fellow growers as well. Check in with the head gardener in January to see if there are available plots for the upcoming season!
