Back Home in Virginia

Gary and Lynne Hess live on a beautiful 240-acre farm land in Rockingham County, Virginia — literally within walking distance of the Harrisonburg city limits. The farm is open seasonally for family fun … and this year, Hess Greenhouse has relocated to the farm!  While much of the farm’s fall attractions are geared toward children, there’s plenty to entertain “kids” from age two to ninety-two.

This Week at the Farm

All excited to open the greenhouse April 1st. We’re hard at work transplanting and tidying up. Shipments coming in along with everything we grow ourselves so mark your calendar!
