Spend a day with us On a tranquil Victorian farm overlooking Cayuga Lake, we produce world-renowned majolica tableware, home furnishings, and more. Just one mile north of the charming village of Aurora, New York, MacKenzie-Childs is a world away from the day-to-day. As you enter the winding brick driveway, you’ll know you are arriving at a very special place. Whether you have just an hour or the entire day to spend, we invite you to visit us.
Stroll in our gardens In every season, our magnificent, ever-changing gardens celebrate nature’s grand design. Our 65-acre farm includes the production studio, a restored Victorian farmhouse, a duck pond, the Gothic-Revival-style Chicken Palace aviary, and a meadow where a herd of Scottish Highland cattle graze. The grounds are open from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm daily.
Watch a studio tour video in our new visitors’ center The 15-minute video tour takes you behind the scenes from design through production, showing our talented artisans at work as they handcraft and paint the extraordinary pieces we create. Live demonstrations in the visitor center are also offered daily.
Tour the farmhouse Exquisitely restored, the Farmhouse showcases MacKenzie-Childs designs in a variety of traditional interiors. Daily guided tours take you through 15 rooms on three floors, each one a design inspiration.
Just relax The Courtly Check Courtyard is a lovely spot to rest, with several umbrella-covered tables surrounding a fountain. Light refreshments are available at the Information Center. For lunch or dinner, head south to the historic village of Aurora.
