Dear Dog owners!
The plants at the Folly Arboretum can be damaged by dog markings. To preserve the treasures of the garden, please leave your little pets at home! Thank you for your understanding!
Our botanic garden is not simply an arboretum of many. It is not only a unique collection of cedars and cypresses, but a family history of several generations, a result of dedicated work and perseverance. Be a part of the history of our family! Feel the tranquility of centuries-old cedars, an enchanting view over the lake Balaton and taste our wines, which are expertise and spare no effort were made to you.
The Badacsony Agricultural Authority offered numerous plots in order to expand the collection; plots from which grape vines had been removed. Our father, Gyula Folly (1943 – 2011), the grandson of the founder and an agricultural engineer, took over these plots and planted them with exotic species. In 1977 he established a nursery opposite the entrance to the family residence in order to defray the ever increasing costs of running the arboretum. He also planted in the Old Arboretum to keep it refreshed.
In 1981 he embarked upon a western European collection tour and returned with around a hundred new species, most of which he planted on the top terrace (X. plot). His hard work is evident when we look at the then uncultivated land under the Old Arboretum (XII. Plot). In 1980, with State support, a fence was erected around the arboretum to prevent damage by wild animals and theft. At this time the family asked for compensation for their requisitioned land, but the State made it clear that by now the arboretum was so well maintained at great expense, that the family could only buy it back for cash. This is how the whole area became the property of the Folly family once again.
In 2010, we, the fourth generation, Reka Folly became involved in the work. We continue to cultivate the arboretum and winery, thus maintaining the century old family tradition.
