Monches Farm is a nursery featuring more than 2,000 varieties of hardy field grown perennials. “We specialize in rare and unusual perennials and annuals, including native prairie plants and a collector’s selection of daylilies,” says horticulturist ZannahCrowe. “It’s well worth the trip when the daylily garden blooms in July,” she says. Visitors can also purchase locally grown pumpkins and heirloom squash in autumn, hand-made dried floral wreaths and arrangements, and one-of-a-kind garden art created by local artists. Free and open to the public March to December, the farm is closed Monday, but open 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m.-4p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
