Philosophy

We started our garden with the vision of building upon the local conservation legacies of Laurance Rockefeller and Frederick Billings and George Perkins Marsh by sustainably growing phenomenal local produce. We employ hand cultivation techniques, permaculture methods and principles of nutrient dense farming to grow the freshest, healthiest and tastiest certified organic produce for our restaurants and beautiful flowers for our interiors. We embrace an approach of improving the land we use and strive to bring a tangible awareness of growing with the land for a holistic garden to guest experience for our visitors.

Location & History

Nestled on the hillside of the Kedron Valley, Kelly Way Gardens is located one mile south of the Inn and the Woodstock Village Green on Route 106. Previously the site of a dairy and horse farm, we broke ground on half an acre of fallow pasture in 2013 and today have grown in size to 3 acres of vegetables, fruit, herbs, cut flowers, mushrooms, honeybees and function spaces. In 2018, we introduced our newly enhanced 19th century Red Barns for events, culinary programming and gardening classes.
