The aroma of Kelly Way Gardens’ three acres of vegetables, herbs, flowers, berries, and fruit trees is tantalizing on a summer’s day. Its rich bounty is magnificent. Kelly Way Gardens is a farm to table program operated by The Woodstock Inn & Resort.
Master Gardener Benjamin Pauly (Ben) aspires to produce a large variety of organic food and flowers there, including heirloom varieties, that will provide culinary inspiration to the inn’s chefs and food for its restaurants. Flowers and plantings, fresh and dried, offer a natural supply of décor for the inn.
The gardens are open to all visitors, and tours and events such as tomato tastings are scheduled throughout the growing season from May through early October.
