Hortulus Farm, a 100-acre property, has 30 acres of twenty-four separate gardens that are composed of formal gardens linked by paths, greenswards, and bridges passing over local Fire Creek. In spring, the Hortulus Farm lawns and woodlands are ablaze with over 200,000 daffodils, narcissus, bluebells, native dogwoods, and Delaware Valley white azaleas. Particularly notable later in the season are imposing perennial and summer borders, a lush woodland walk circumnavigating the lake, birch and pine allées, pool and fountain gardens, and a splendidly re-conceived kitchen garden. The historic barns and outbuildings at Hortulus Farm are home to a colorfully diverse family of farm animals, including dogs, horses, cats, sheep, chickens, ducks, swans, peacocks, and pheasants.
