6. Kitchen Garden

Situated next to the Plank Kitchen is a small kitchen garden that once was used for growing various fruits, but is now used solely for growing herbs. The herb and vegetable garden was originally located next to the carriage house but was eventually moved to its current location. On the farm, herbs were used for seasoning food, scenting soaps, or as remedies for ailments. Fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden would have been preserved through canning for use throughout the year.
