We follow all Covid-19 guideline as issued through San Bernardino County, and the State of California. Scheduled visit appointments do not overlap, so there will only be one group visiting at a time. The terraced farm is a large open space and provides plenty of room for healthy social distancing. However, it is vital that everyone follow Covid-19 guidelines:
- All visitors are required to have face coverings.
- If you come into contact with staff, please maintain a safe distance of 6 feet.
About the Property
Our terraced iris farm is located on a hillside, and the grounds are steeply terraced. There are elevation changes, inclines, and stairs. The terraced iris farm is accessed by a downhill walk – which means uphill on the way back! The visit is not recommended for individuals that have vertigo, have difficulty navigating stairs or hills, or are unsteady on their feet. The iris farm walkways are steep in places, are comprised of decomposed granite, or asphalt, and include stairs. The iris farm has little to no shade.
We are located in a residential area at the end of a cul-de-sac. Our irises are in the back acreage and are not visible from roadways. When you arrive, please feel free to park anywhere along the street, taking care not to block neighbor’s driveways. Our address will be emailed to you with appointment confirmation.
About Your Visit
The gate will be open, and a garden map with the location of irises will be available at the entryway. There will be signs with directions to the farm. You are welcome to meander around looking at irises at your own pace throughout your reserved time. If we are out working on the irises, please don’t hesitate to ask questions or ask for assistance!
You are welcome to photograph any of the iris, grounds, views, and landscape. Please respect our privacy and refrain from photographing the residence ~ Thank you in advance.
