You will never be far from our farm with these links.
Welcome to our Historic Farm
Opening day for the 2018 season is Wednesday March 28. Please see Days and Hours Open for all the information. We are excited about the upcoming season. Our greenhouses will soon be full of wonderful plants waiting for a ride to your garden in one of our little red wagons.
Indiana's oldest herb farm greenhouse nursery specializes in culinary herbs, ornamental annuals, perennials, garden decor, and classes. Get advice on how to care for your plants from our resident horticulturalist with 20 plus years experience. We have thousands of herbs, annuals and perennials for sale. We also offer classes for individuals and groups. Click here for the link to the list of events offered at Stream Cliff Farm.
Our plants are grown without growth inhibitors. Growth inhibitors are regulating substances which retard such processes as root and stem elongation, seed germination, and bud opening. These regulators actively depress growth. Often times plants are sold with growth inhibitors to extend the shelf life of the plant. We also do not use pesticides. We do use beneficial insects such as ladybugs and praying mantis. We do not use herbicides. We use salt and vinegar to prohibit the growth of weeds in our greenhouses. By not using chemicals on our plants we provide you the safest and highest quality plants you deserve.
Dates for our 2nd Annual Old Barn Markets and BBQs have been set. Purchase your Early Bird Admission tickets here. Tickets are $5.00 and will get you in at 8:30 am. Early Bird special discounts are available until 10:00 am. Tickets are good until the market closes at 4:00.
At these Old Barn Markets you will find vendors selling a wonderful array of creative items ranging from farm objects to beautiful jewelry, painted furniture, signs, primitive and shabby chic antiques as well as articles we love to call "junktique". We will have our huge smoker cooking our delicious pulled pork BBQ as well as other great food all served from our Chuck Wagon.
Our schedule will be full of classes on gardening, art and cooking. Visit our Class Registration page for the listing of all the classes. These classes are a nice opportunity to spend the day with your girlfriends, mother or daughter. Or come alone and make friends with your classmates!
Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant will begin taking online reservations for the Mother's Day Luncheon on March 1st. This is always a sell out. Please make your reservations early if you would like to celebrate Mother's Day with us.
Again this year we will be offering free live music in our beautiful barn on Sunday afternoons. During our Summer Music Series lunch will be served at both the main restaurant and the barn so you do not have to miss a minute of the music. We will have a talented line up of musicians playing this year. Follow us on Facebook for event reminders.
It is always our pleasure to share our family's farm with you. Please make plans to visit us soon.
