Trip to Stream Cliff Herb Farm

I recently took a trip to a little place called Stream Cliff Farm in Commiskey, Indiana. What a hidden jewel this is! I knew nothing about it until my friend Amy suggested that we take a trip there to celebrate our birthdays. It's about an hour or so from Louisville and well worth the trip if you have lunch at their quaint restaurant.

They have a wonderful selection of plants and herbs. And if you love to take photos, you will find lots of great spots to take pictures. There are gardens and water features, a little sanctuary area for weddings, craft classes, a winery, a restaurant, gift shops, some friendly goats and a baby donkey. We had quite the sampling of food in the restaurant and what is really cool is how they use the flowers on the plates as edible garnish and there are herbs (like lemon verbena) used in the lemonade and tea. Be sure to try the "bird seed pasta" if you go.

If you are looking for a nice place to visit in the country, give this place a try! It's worth the drive!

We just had a girls' day out to the Stream Cliff Herb Farm last week, and it was wonderful. I was inspired to plant a small herb garden of my own. (I posted additonal pictures on my blog post if you are interested in seeing them.)
