Tucked away in the rolling hills of Bucks County, Hortulus Farm is nothing short of beautiful. With over 200,000 daffodils, narcissus, bluebells, native dogwoods and Delaware Valley white azaleas, the 100-acre, 18th-century farmstead and nursery operation is perfect for event planners seeking unique and colorful scenery. Within its large property, the farm breaks off into 24 separate gardens on 30 of its acres, all linked by paths, green - swards and bridges. The historic property emits tranquility and its “18th- and 19th-century buildings are surrounded by such horticultur - al opulence that the scene registers as both sublimely serene and surre - al,” describes noted garden author Jack Staub. The farm is home to animals like dogs, horses, cats, sheep, chickens, ducks, swans, pea - cocks and pheasants. From May to October, Hortulus Farm offers a one-and-a-half-hour guided tour of the gardens in groups of eight to 50 people. Its event space, Heaven, occupies three bays of the upper greenhouses at the nursery, can hold up to 200 people and is filled with flowering trees, plants, rustic tables and chairs, and a dance floor. Jeffery Miller Catering is the exclusive caterer at Hortulus Farm.
