Jane’s Saddlebag is a local destination that has been on my list for a while to check out. My boys and I finally made it there during a free farm tour event that allowed visitors to learn more about each of the farms in the area.
This farm turned out to be so much more of a local gem than I expected it to be! They offer something for the whole family but it’s also a nice destination for a relaxing date or an afternoon with friends.
Kids will enjoy the petting zoo, play land, Kid Village, and Hayrides.
The property at Jane’s Saddlebag is large enough to have lots to do, but small enough that you can still keep an eye on your kids.
If you are hungry or thirsty, Jane’s Saddlebag has you covered. During our visit, one of the owners from Jane’s Saddlebag gave us an Apple Blossom to try (apple pie wrapped in a pastry served warm with ice cream and topped with Marker’s Mark Bourbon Carmel sauce.)
Yes, it was even more AMAZING in person and yes, I highly recommend that you get one when you visit too! The restaurant also serves other menu items where everything is made in house at affordable prices.
I was given one Jane’s Saddlebag also sells seasonings to try out. I’ve been using their seasoning on my chicken ever since and it tastes great.
If you are thirsty for an adult beverage I recommend trying the wine slushies. They also carry an assortment of wine or beer.
So where does the name come from? Notice the two red doors in the image below? Jane was the owner’s grandmother and “saddlebag” was the style of home with two doors. The structure was later refurbished to become Jane’s Saddlebag.
The property also has history on display with a Historic Smokehouse and a replica flatboat that would have been used to transport pioneers on the nearby Ohio River in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s .
Jane’s Saddlebag had lots of areas that are perfect for photo opps and it’s location is conveniently located less than 4 miles from Big Bone Lick State Park.
Jane’s Saddlebag is the perfect destination for an afternoon drive. I’m definitely looking forward to going back.
