View of B&B from Chefs Garden
I purchased these gladiola bulbs from Martins Farm Stand 4 years ago. They produce beautiful flowers that we use to decorate 1844 House in the late summer months.
These sweet red raspberries will go into salads and desserts in our late summer menu.
We grow 4 varieties of apples in our garden, From the looks of the trees, it will be a great harvest this year. We use our apples in our autumn salads, stuffing's and many types of desserts.
In this raised bed, we have English lavender, sage, and purple cabbage. We use the lavender for our flavored butters and sorbets.
We have several varieties of grapes growing in our gardens including these concord grapes. It appears that it will be a great year for grapes.
One of 4 varieties of apples we grow in ou gardens.
We use a lot of sage in our fall dishes, our sage bushes have been producing all of our sage for over 7 years. They really thrive in our gardens.

Our Chefs Garden includes a variety of fresh herbs, edible flowers and vegetables.

Chefs Garden at 1844 House
Early summer picture of the Chefs Garden at 1844 as the plants begin to grow.
Summer has finally arrived and our gardens are beginning to flourish. With the addition of The Guest House at 1844 last year, we were also able to expand our gardens an extra half acre this year. Now our restaurant and Inn guests can wander through the gardens in the evenings while enjoying one of our refreshing summer cocktails, a cool craft beer, or a glass of wine from our Wine Spectator Award winning wine list.
Our gardens are designed to help supply our restaurant with small amounts of many different foods; though we still rely on our local farms to supply us with the bulk of our needs. Our gardens are for our guest enjoyment and to create a perfect “Farm to Table” venue for special theme dinners in the garden, weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions, and private parties.
We hope you will take a moment to wander through our gardens and see what we are growing during your next visit. There are many great changes happening at 1844 House, come on out and see whats new. We look forward to seeing you.
Bon Appetite! Chef Brian
