LEGACY.

We are located on the last 1.68 acres of the original owners 100+ acre dairy farm.

We are working to preserve the legacy of this land by raising dairy goats, pastured egg layers, vegetables, herbs, flowers and community Farm Feasts. 

The land we currently live on is the last small piece of what was a large cattle dairy enterprise that began around 1920. We do not know a great deal about this property but will continue to try to learn more. 

We do know that the dairy was owned by a family called The Littles.  There is still a metal name plate on one of our outbuildings and we have met folks in town that knew that family that began the dairy. It is rumored that the Littles may have owned additional land around the corner from this plot on Middleton Road and operated the dairy from there as well.

As we learn more, we will post it here.  but in the meantime we are working diligently to build upon the legacy of this land having been designated for the growth of food for our community

Please see below how we are working towards our goals and towards building the legacy of this land...
