Appleton Farms

©2013 Steve BorichevskyAppleton Farms is America’s oldest, continuously running, family owned farm. The picture below is the old farm house. It was left unoccupied for few decades. It was recently restored and now houses administrative offices and a visitor’s center. Let’s go in for a look.

The staircase is fabulous. (I’ve always wanted to take a picture like this.)

A real kick-butt kitchen where cooking and cheese making classes will be held. (I’d give my eye teeth for a stove like that!)

Every morning and afternoon the Jersey girls are brought in for milking.

This is Annette and her friends. These are the cows that we get our milk from.

this was a really interesting post Steve. A beautiful property; looking splendid in the spring with all the leafy trees. Fabulous working kitchen ...

They must have sold a LOT of milk to do that restoration. Looks sharp. Now why would you want a stove that big?

What a fantastic place. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Really nice post, a lovely, well kept farm with a herd of the best milkers. They may not give as much mil as a Friesian but the mild is decidedly richer and perfect for all purposes, especially cheese making.
The farmhouse is a dream, with a full restaurant kitchen . . . I wouldn't mind living there at all . . .
