Event description

Description

The Porter-Phelps-Huntington historic house, built in 1752 by Moses and Elizabeth Porter is set on a “tract of land” called Forty Acres. It has been in the family for six generations. The house has three names for one interesting reason: instead of passing from father to son as was customary in early America, the house was owned by women for three generations.

Barstow's Longview Farm is a seventh generation family farm founded in the early 1800's. It comprises 450 acres with 550 dairy cows producing 15,000 gallons of milk daily. Barstows believe “agriculture is part of everyone's roots and while the connection is beginning to become lost, this is an opportunity to keep the line of communication, conversation, understanding and experience wide open.”
