The first time I visited this place in Aurora was about a year ago as part of a family outing including wineries, and picnicking. We enjoyed MacKenzie-Childs' lovely landscaping and tailgated with a few sandwiches briefly before exploring the farm, shop, and visitor's center. Some of the things I like about visiting the MacKenzie-Childs shop, grounds, and farmhouse are that they are beautiful, quirky and free to visit. There is a continuously running video that gives some background on the art of the business and shows how their products are made by hand in the attached production facility. A museum-like farmhouse showcasing almost everything they've ever made is open for tours daily at scheduled times. The tour guides are a wealth of information on the business. Touring the house is reminiscent of going down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland.
Can't get to the wine trail but want to pick up some great Finger Lakes wines in Ithaca? Located eight miles from Tenwood Lodge, Northside Wine and Spirits has a huge variety of wines and liquor including over 600 Finger Lakes wines. Some weeknights they have free tastings.
