Life in the country has its very own set of experiences which cannot be found in an urban setting. In our area we can access the following:
Al Fresco Dining
Summer at the property means warm days and pleasant evenings. Dining in the outdoor gazebo just as the sun is setting is magic as the shadows move across the property, the frogs are singing and the glow from the oil lamps provide both light and an unforgettable atmosphere
Farm fresh Eggs, Chickens and Beef, Vegetables, Fruit
Within 5k you can buy food so fresh that it is probably picked on the same day you buy it. Free range eggs and chickens from Muldrew’s Farm, strawberries and tomatoes and vegetables from Ferguson’s Farm stand in Garden Hill. Fresh asparagus in the Spring and crisp apples in the Fall.
Fun On The Property/Walking Trails
Visitors to the farm are mesmerized by the beauty of the grounds and the walking trails. Family gatherings allow unlimited activities. Walking trails have been marked at the south end of the property through the forest and down to the stream in the ravine.
The garden nearest the house is reserved for vegetable growing in raised beds – tomatoes, dill, basil, carrots, beans, beets,
