There is a magical aura at The Pond and Apple Orchard. It radiates from the majestic pond and beautiful sculptures that adorn it. The pond is embellished with vibrant green water lillies and overlooks many of the farm's most important landmarks. The circular stoned area is the place where soulmates meet. From it, you have scenic views of the pond, captivating sculptures, and naturally wooded areas.
Many enchanting walkways are present throughout the farm, lined with angelic wildflowers and mesmerizing sculptures of all shapes and sizes. Follow the curvature of the pond to find it lined with the most interesting mini sculptures. Next, you'll find a walkway leading to the impressive blue and silver bell that is truly wondrous. End your journey by ringing the bell, allowing the calming sounds and deep vibrations that resonate to remind you what a magical place this farm is and was for your special day.
