What is there to do?

It's all things butterflies at the Flying Flowers Butterfly House, located on the Beagle Ridge Herb Farm in Virginia.

If your kids love getting among these beautifully colorful and delicate creatures, then they will love the walk through butterfly house. There are so many to enjoy!

Flying Flowers have always had beautiful butterflies in their gardens, so they created the butterfly house so people could really enjoy them. You can stroll among them, and even enjoy a Butterfly Tea!

Within the gardens they have specialized butterfly plantings - both native and non native plants - which attract 32 different butterfly species. The wonderful thing about Flying Flowers Butterfly House is that because they have a huge variety of plants both with host and nectar properties, they attract butterflies when they are in their adult stage, so when they lay their eggs in the garden kids can see the cycle of life unfolding right in front of them!

Flying Flowers is great for that butterfly interaction, then why not spend time afterwards at the Beagle Ridge Herb Farm too. They have afternoon teas, events, and even classes to teach you about certain vegetables or garden themes. 

Located just 10 miles south of Wytheville, they are at a very cool 2,600 feet elevation, and the farm itself is 160 acres in beautiful scenery - so if you love nature this is your place! There are hiking trails on the property through a variety of ecosystems, and the butterflies are found not just in the butterfly house too...can you spot them!?

A wonderful family day out in nature in Virginia!
