“Let us save what remains: not by vaults and locks which fence them from the public eye and use in consigning them to the waste of time, but by such a multiplication of copies, as shall place them beyond the reach of accident.”
Here at Long Hill Farm we have set about restoring an 1810 Federal Style House and Dairy Farm. We are committed to reinvigorating the property keeping in mind its long rich history. While we have no plans on becoming dairy farmers we started our second year with the introduction of heirloom and historical vegetables from around the world, many of which predate 1800. We don’t know exactly how we what the future holds for this property but we’re excited to be momentary players in its evolution.
“A story is not like a road to follow … it’s more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you.”
