As farms go, Coldwater Gardens is one of the most memorable you’ll ever see. Just outside Historic Milton, Florida, this is fresh-and-local brought to the level of adventure travel—with luxuriously eco-friendly accommodations where you can prepare a vacation meal with produce just yards from its source.
Aquaponics. Shiitake mushroom cultivation. This is no ordinary farm, and visitors have the option of touring these innovative gardens at leisure, or scheduling in-depth guided tours. Certified naturally grown gourmet produce is available year-round in a stunning variety, reflecting the power of northwest Florida’s year-round growing season when combined with new gardening techniques.
Coldwater Gardens offers accommodations as innovative as its cultivation. From primitive creek-side camping to spacious eco-design cottages for four, guests can be immersed in the environment with opportunities to prepare fresh ingredients. Luxury glamping tents feature teak dining furniture, mini fridge, kitchen hutch and charcoal gill. In the modernist treehouse, you’ll find a contemporary kitchen surrounded by magnolia treetops. A tiny-house cabana offers covered outdoor kitchen and dining, and in the eco-design cottages, you’ll find natural views reflected in the stainless-steel appliances of the full kitchen.
The culinary opportunities don’t end there. A spacious, contemporary meeting space offers wide options for memorable events featuring Coldwater Gardens’ produce and natural surroundings.
