Planning a trip to the southern Maine coast? Make time for a visit to a garden that’s one of the most magical places in the state: Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk.
Why Snug Harbor Farm is One of the Most Magical Places in Maine
“Driving along Route 9 in Kennebunk, you almost pass Snug Harbor Farm before you catch an intriguing glimpse of an outbuilding or pony grazing and a little bit of magic occurs.”
This passage from the Snug Harbor Farm website is pretty much spot-on. Pull over to browse the perennials, and you’ll soon discover this is no ordinary country garden center, but rather a garden wonderland complete with five greenhouses, a nursery, a barn, pastures, growing fields, a colorful shop, and resident animals that include poodles, ponies, and peacocks.
Here’s a look at my June 2017 visit to Snug Harbor Farm.
If you ever find yourself in or near Kennebunk, Maine, I can guarantee that adding a stop at Snug Harbor Farm (open daily from 9 to 5) will be one of the most delightful parts of your day.
