Farm Description:

A National Historic Register site, the farm is a remarkably intact collection of ca. 1780-1830s outbuildings clustered around a ca. 1780 log cabin and an 1833 two-story Federal style main house surrounded by expansive lawns, gardens, orchards, pastures, gazebos and ponds.

We have a large garden and a starter orchard, both of which we are considering expanding. A favorite pastime of visitors to the farm is to wander the grounds to visit the latest arrivals, from foals and chicks in the spring to honey bees to stray animals that seem to wander in and find a home on the farm. The farm also hosts champion thoroughbred horses, hunter/jumper horses & ponies, miniature donkeys, Clydesdales, several hives of honey bees, chickens, guineas, free range peacocks, black swan, dogs and cats. Goats and Texas longhorn cattle are next!

We would like to meet some folks through the WWOOF program who share our commitment to preserving farm land and who can help convert our large personal garden into an organic garden with possibly a co-op or CSA program. We would prefer experience, but look primarily for a great attitude, positive personality, ability to learn, and a willingness to work with with animals, garden crops, gardening and landscaping.
