Dating back to 1690, when William Penn granted 300 acres to Isaiah Warner, Hortulus Farm has evolved over time into a garden estate of the first order – embracing history and horticulture in a setting that is nothing less than a fairy tale.
Now 100 acres in scope, the 18th-Century estate known as Hortulus Farm Garden & Nursery is the creation of world-renowned garden and event designer Renny Reynolds and gardening author Jack Staub. At every turn, the property bespeaks pride of place. Bucolic trails lead to 24 distinct formal gardens, the original stone manor house, two large dairy barns and various additional outbuildings including the 1860s ice house and working greenhouses.
In 2000, The Hortulus Farm Foundation was established to ensure this National Landmark will continue to exist as a public place of tranquility and visual inspiration in perpetuity.
