The strong visitor roster Chukkar Farm appreciates is the basis for our new offering of Cashin’s Sculpture Garden. The installation of the Sculpture Garden will be along an existing horse riding trail that gently meanders through nature’s cathedral in a spectacular woodland area populated with a variety of hardwoods. The sun dapples through the leaves and sets the stage for wonderment.
