Description

Take in the region’s agrarian history, often next to the modern day operations of the Honey Brook Organic Farm on this loop trail. Parts of the Andrew Drake farmstead are especially scenic including the unique windmill, stately farm house, dairy barn, and outbuildings. These structures date to the mid 18th century, providing plenty to admire!

The Blackwell-Stout-Voorhes farmstead was established in the mid 1800’s, providing a more recent look at the history of the region.

Honey Brook’s organic farming practices on the Reserve are helping to protect the local environment and water resources.
