The Garden of Eatin’ at The Inn at Little Washington
There are four growing areas for vegetable production on The Inn at Little Washington grounds including two greenhouses, 18 raised beds and approximately one-half acre of gardens. We raise more than 200 different varieties of vegetables and fruit using all organic methods. All of the produce goes to the kitchen where it is utilized for the menu, or preserved for later use and for The Village Market. The kitchen puts away over 350 quarts of preserves during the season and the gardens produce over 6000 pounds of food annually.
Visitors are invited to stop by the Garden of Eatin’. The gardens are located behind The Tavern Shop. You can find the entrance to our Perimeter Path between The Tavern Shops and the Mayors House on Main Street. Follow the path to the garden and stable.
Come see the amazing array of fresh vegetables and flowers utilized daily by the Inn at Little Washington. Next to the garden is the stable featuring goats, sheep, llamas and a very posh chicken coop.
