Jersey Road Trip!! An “ORCHID-LY” Awesome Day Trip
Take a Jersey road trip, this might be something you might just love.
My first question to you, do you love orchids? Do you love this beautiful flower? I know my Nana did. I would've loved to bring her to Duke Farms.
Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ has so much to offer, but the giant show of the farm is the orchids. According to njmonthly.com, the Orchid Range is something you do not want to miss. Duke Farms has over 1,200 exotic varieties of my Nana's favorite flower, the orchid. Can you even imagine, how beautiful?
Covid-19 closed the Orchid Range and it just reopened this month. (Social Distancing restrictions apply) Last year with limited hours, Duke Farms welcomed over 110,000 guests, down from the usual 170,000 guests when the orchids were open year-round.
There are several things to look at while at Duke Farms but the Orchid Range is still the most popular and from what I hear from friends that just visited the farm say it's unbelievably beautiful. I have to check this out.
My friends told me that there are several buildings on the farm that are environmentally friendly and the temperatures have to range from 50 - 85 degrees because of the flowers and orchids.
Duke Farms is located at 1112 Dukes Pkwy N in Hillsborough, NJ.
With Covid-19, Duke Farm and the Orchid Range faces keeping the orchids and visitors safe, according to njmonthly.com. For visitor's safety, doors and windows are kept open for ventilation but if the orchids get too cold, they will die.
Enjoy the orchids. Saturdays might get a little crowded and Sundays they are closed, for more information, click here.
