HISTORY

Originally, Abbey Road was a family farm and horse boarding & training facility. Later, in 2003,

it became a grass seed farm and Bed & Breakfast.

In 2017 the property was purchased by the Wilkens family, who then turned the grass seed farm into a 45 acre vineyard and the horse riding arena into a wine making facility, tasting room and event center.

Baxter also tells me, "Our focus at the farm is to educate and inspire guests to create an association between celebration, hospitality and a connection to the land. We farm organically, provide a true 'our farm' to 'our table' experience through our culinary program and look to create unique experiences for every guest who visits us!"
