2. Little Hill Flower Farm
Little Hill Flower Farm is nestled just 7 minutes outside historic Vincennes, Indiana overlooking the Knox County countryside. We invite visitors to experience the joy of picking, arranging, and strolling through rows of gorgeous blooms during our You-Pick Events. Our farm-fresh flowers are long-lasting, unique, and make beautiful arrangements.
1. Yonder Spirits Distillery
This all-female-owned and operated micro artisan distillery pumps out 100 proof Bo Ray moonshine from a copper gooseneck still. Yonder Spirits—housed in an old family barn—also offers a number of flavored moonshines, all made in small batches with a combination of natural ingredients; usually only fruits, sugar, and spices. What they lack in size and flash, they make up for in taste and attention to detail with each product.
