About the Farm
Doris has lived on the farm for 30 years and raised her children there. The core of the original farmhouse dates back to 1850 and was a rough hewn cabin hauled from a nearby pond.
Bob joined her in 2012 and together they have renovated buildings, built new structures, put in a farm pond and expanded the vegetable gardens and small orchard.
