The Plucky Peacock


farm stand & picnickery

The Plucky Peacock farm stand serves as our outfitting station for the property as well as an outlet for farm grown vegetables and daily fresh eggs. We also have vinegar and olive oil tastings, gourmet charcuterie, cold drinks, coffee, and board games. The Plucky Peacock is also home to our Picnickery. Come and see us at the farm stand and we’ll put together a picnic basket for you, complete with classic gingham blanket, for you to enjoy on the Candlelight Forest grounds.
