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 yes, Hess Greenhouse has relocated to the farm! You can find all the flowers you found at the Rt. 11 location right here on the farm from early April through mid-June.  Then join us for a summer visit to the Enchanted Garden Greenhouse to learn about butterflies and then again in the fall for pumpkins and even more farm fun! Our 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

The farm is still open for summer visitors, and the maze opens in just 18 days! A few orange pumpkins have appeared in the Enchanted gardens – that surely means Punkin Hollar is coming soon. Ms. Emily  tested the Apple Cider doughnut recipe today (it was awesome!) and Ms. Kristen got signs posted for all the new activities this fall.  Mark your calendar… our favorite time of the year is coming!
