This is a working "field tripesque" kind of place. Many school groups visit here as well as locals to experience first hand working on a farm. Fun place for a day trip.

Former gentleman's working farm, lovingly maintained in the same spirit of the donor. Part of Morris County Park Commission's system. Not to be missed.
