  Our Story...
My husband and I both grew up on small farms. We really wanted to get back to that for us and our 7 yr old son Jack. We thought we would have to buy a farm down south because property was so expensive in NJ. My hubby Glenn went down to SC where his brother lives and tried to find ome possible places for us, but he found nothing. Meanwhile, a friend of ours told us to check out her Grandmother's farm. She died 5 yrs ago, no one in the family wanted the property, so they put it up for sale. We bought it!!! It's eight acres, mostly cleared with about 2 acres of woods. It backs up to the Rancocas Creek. The house was built in 1932 by our friends Grandparents, they raised 7 children here. They farmed soybeans, Christmas trees, cattle, chickens, and asparagus. Our friend's Grandmother was very religious and loved Dogwood trees, there are about 30 of them on the property! There is also a massive oak tree that is estimated to be over 300 yrs old on the property.
We love it here!!

They are a hodge-podge that we got from our local Agway. Rhode Island Reds, Black Sex Linked, Aracuna Mixes. The new chicks are some White Brahmas, Buff Orpingtons, and Plymouth Barred Rocks.
My son absolutely loves them!!
