You won’t want to miss Bellfree Farm, a private equestrian stable and riding ring or a home gardener whose Thuja Green Giant privacy hedge is the backdrop for multiple raised vegetable beds, berry bushes and unique plantings around large boulders excavated on the property. A total of 6 unique properties will be available to visit.
