The property has been in the family for nine generations, since 1683.  It is currently a working farm.  At the farm you will see a growing herd of Devonshire Red beef cattle. This is the heritage breed of cattle brought to the colonies by the settlers in the 1600s.  It is the same cattle raised here by the owners’ ancestors.  Other animals include Mangalitsa pigs (a hairy pig that grazes like a cow), Rhode Island Red chickens, Boer goats, and Hair Sheep (a type of sheep that has hair and not wool raised for its meat).  We also grow hay and corn along with soy beans to feed the animals.
