Fergie’s Gardeners, a member of the National Garden Clubs, is devoted to the restoration and preservation of the Country Era garden created by Alice.
The History of Hard Bargain Farm is preserved in the house, gardens, outbuildings and collections owned by Henry and Alice.
This short video is a tribute to Hank Xander, whose 40+ years as HBF farm manager was preceded by his father’s long tenure in that position for the Fergusons.
The Farm Alice managed is working today, much as it was in the 1930s and ‘40s.
