Horton Farms is located 12 miles [20 minutes] from downtown Bentonville, in Gravette, Arkansas. 200 acres of beautiful landscapes ranging from flat lands, perfect for Corporate Retreats, Company Picnics, great for Family Reunions, Weddings and Receptions, to rolling hills that show off the natural beauty of Horton Farms.
As you approach the entrance you will notice hand crafted entrance gates and matching wrought iron fencing. When entering the gates please notice the hand stamped concrete driveway. There are hundreds of tons of native Arkansas stones that create the walls (over 1,000 feet of hand-stacked stone walls) of the driveway leading to the old-fashioned covered bridge. The bridge has eight marble hand-made crosses both on the inner walls and outer walls for your enjoyment and as a symbol of what Christ did for all. While crossing the bridge look out to your right at the beautiful rock bluffs that direct those raging waters through the property (weather permitting). The Horton Farms Bridge was built in Jonesboro, Arkansas. It is the same quality bridge used on Arkansas state highways. It was trucked in on seven semi truck-trailers. A large crane erected the bridge – it was assisted by two additional tractor-trailers that carried counter-weights to balance the crane. On your visit this bridge may be suspended over a dry creek (thus the name Horton Farms at Dry Creek); but those of us who know and understand this sleepy creek know as Little Spavinaw, know it also as a “raging river” in the right circumstances.
From the bridge you will notice our waterfall; again, constructed from native Arkansas stone. The stone stairs are lined with wrought-iron handrails for safety, and the upper deck of the waterfall is fenced in wrought iron, a perfect spot for your wedding or photos.
No sooner will you cross the bridge and you’ll notice a gift to the Horton’s from some of those who helped to build Horton Farms. It is a large standing flat rock sign with our name etched into it on the front side, with a cross on the reverse.
Enjoy the rolling hills, beautiful meadows, and groves of Oaks, Cedars, and scattered Sycamores.
There is also a private pavilion located right off the lake. The pavilion is fully equipped with lights, fans and sound equipment. The pavilion has seating capability for over 20 people. Located off the pavilion is our hand built rock fire pit with a custom rock slab bench.
There are so many scenic/visual opportunities for those visiting Horton Farms. Depending on the time of day you come to the farm you will enjoy a beautiful sunrise that is a perfect time to reflect on life’s blessings, to sunset where the visual beauty of Horton Farms dies off to the west. Night-time offers a whole beauty of its own. From all the clear Christmas style lights that seem to be everywhere (year around) to the light provided by God via His stars. There is never a shortage of scenic amazement at Horton Farms.
