Originally the farmstead was built by Stephen Whitlock in 1855, then later left to his son
John and his wife Elisabeth Nellis. The original farm consisted of 289 acres, including a
dairy farm, Whitlock Mills which was a sawmill and lumber yard, and a cheese box factory.
Between the lumber mill and the dairy farm, crops,and a cheese box factory the farmstead
was pretty much self sufficient. In our own way we have tried to also grow most of our
vegetables, fruits and eggs... and can, freeze and preserve everything possible, just as
Elisabeth did. We also hang our wash on outside lines as much as weather permits and plan
our gardening in a way that Elisabeth might have done so long ago. Heritage Meadows Farm,
now only 60 acres, is located in the heart of "farm first country", shared with Amish
Danny, Mattie and Toby, and of
course Steve (with treats).
