Our Story

The farm originated in 1918 with David’s grandparents, Raymond & Mary (Leather) Herbst. As a newlywed couple they moved into the original farm, at the cross roads of 64 & 418, on a snowy Saturday. They milked cows, raised chickens& pigs. They had 5 children, Elvin, Dora, John, Robert & Louise all were born at home.

John purchased the farm from his parents in 1950, about the same time they decided to put in the intersection at 64 & 418 when completed the farm had land on all 4 corners. The farm on Misty Meadow Road was owned by two men who were of retirement age and that farm was purchased. Over the years adjoining farms have come available and have been purchased now totaling 387 acres.
