We enjoyed our tour of the property and the historic horse barn. The property is expansive and beautiful. The Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese is so delicious. We ended the day shopping at the Farm Store. The property is expansive and so beautiful.

Historic barns and guest house is remarkable, family-friendly place with animals for children, bakery, lots of walking if desired, fabulous drive-by views if you prefer the car. I go often and take all visitors. Food at the Guest House is also wonderful.

We unfortunately only had 3 hours to spend here. Could easily have spent a full day here. The grounds are so picturesque, and there are tons of activities. Our 2 year old had more than enough to keep him busy.

What you may have meant to say is that you have nothing negative to say. I couldn't agree more. My only regret was not staying for lunch.
