What is the place?


We contain multitudes!

We are 12 acres of cultivated and wild gardens; marshland and woodland; sun and shade; beautiful to adults, magical to children.

We are a 501c-3 non-profit with a mission to maintain and improve our restorative, tranquil, educational garden.  We are an analog antidote to a demented digital world.


Take part of us home with you!

We sell vegetable and ornamental plants in spring, and intriguing garden objects like gnomes, gargoyles, Buddhas,  and fairy gardens throughout the year.

 We host the Simpaug Farm CSA program at our farm stand,  and sell community garden plots to the public.  We sell eggs from our chickens in season.
