Romswood Farm is getting ready to open the gates to show visitors its breathtaking peony farm. Visitors are welcome to explore the established gardens or wander through the fields of blooming peonies where they can pick their own bunch to take home. You can either pack yourself a picnic or enjoy some of the tasty food available at the farm, sit back and listen to live folk music and indulge in the peony products made on site at Romswood. Children can explore nature walks to look out for some of the furry friends who also call Romswood home.
Located in Kerrie, in the Macedon Ranges, Romswood Farm has been growing peonies since the mid -1990s. The cool climate of the region creates perfect peony growing conditions, similar to those of the imperial gardens of China where the peony originated and continues to be revered as a symbol of peace, stability, distinction and wealth. Peonies have a short growing season but are the wonderful flowers to watch as they unfold from bud to the most beautiful mass of petals in the form of a mature bloom.
Open Days are on the 17th, 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th of November with live music on the 19th of November. Pre-purchased tickets are available online for $10 or at the gate for $12, children are free. For more information, visit www.romswoodfarm.com.au.
