The Region November

It is hard to hear the north wind again,
And to watch the treetops, as they sway.

They sway, deeply and loudly, in an effort,
So much less than feeling, so much less than speech,

Saying and saying, the way things say
On the level of that which is not yet knowledge:

A revelation not yet intended.
It is like a critic of God, the world

And human nature, pensively seated
On the waste throne of his own wilderness.

Deeplier, deeplier, loudlier, loudlier,
The trees are swaying, swaying, swaying.

Wallace Stevens 

About Us


Visit the Garden of Ideas and take a walk through our 12 acres of ornamental, vegetable, woodland, and sculpture gardens; you'll never know what you may see!  We display art in our gallery during the warmer months, and host various events depending on the season.  Check back often!


Take a moment to consider the sculpture and poetry throughout the garden.  Perhaps you will find our hidden Garden Gnome, or see our chickens ranging free.  There are plenty of places to sit, to think, and to relax.

Eat, Drink, and be Merry!

We grow and sell vegetables during the spring, summer and fall.  Our space is available for farm to table dinners, cocktail parties, group picnics, children's birthdays and classes...the possibilities are endless!
