This farm was originally part of the “Hawk Farm” purchased by Joseph Hawk in 1819 for $3,420, a tidy sum in those days. We acquired the property in 2004 and meticulously restored and renovated the two stone buildings in 2005-2006. The month of acquisition housed a blue moon, hence the farm’s name.
Today, one would describe our farm as a small family farm, situated on 17 acres providing just about everything a farm family could want: pastures, orchard, hay fields, woodlands, fresh water springs and outbuildings. We have worked hard since 2004 to restore the farm to its natural beauty and capability. It is a labor of love that we wish to share.
You will find us in the summer at the Holland Township Farmers Market. This quaint market, located at the Holland Township Fire House on Rt. 519 (at Andersen Rd), is small and the vendors are REALLY local.
The market is open beginning mid-June through September on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm. All of our products will be on sale as seasonally available.
This spectacular replica of the original barn is the perfect venue for your event. The barn was restored by a wonderful Amish company and the workmanship and care they bestowed is evident immediately when you separate the huge barn doors.
There are 20 robins sitting in the field outside the kitchen, but somehow the 15 degree weather doesn’t make me think it’s Spring. It’s ok though, because we have a special new addition to the farm and she’s quite a distraction from the weather. Her name is Blue. She’s an 8 week old, 15 lb, Old English Sheep (OES) Dog. She’s as cute as a button with the black eye patch as you can see. EOS’s are great farm dogs and she’ll make a great addition after the sudden loss of our beloved Cait this winter.
The cold weather has pushed us back a little with the “list”. Mike hates the list. I love lists. We’ve been married for 39 years… go figure. We will be very busy planting over the next month or two.
