Casey Farm c.1750

This eighteenth-century farm has farmers who raise organically grown produce in a Community Supported Agricultural Program. The property includes the farmyard, family cemetery (where six generations of Caseys are buried) and some wonderful old farm architecture. We visited for their annual plant sale where my husband gleefully chose tomoato, squash, and cucumber plants. Lots of gardeners turn out for the event. Aussie was allowed to come with us and she loved the farm as well. She really didn't have any interest in those strange looking pigs, but she did love the attention she got from all the other visitors. She was very well behaved, as always.

BACK LATER WITH MORE...

Flowers too...

There was a vendor selling beautiful tulips...and Seven Stars Bakery arrived with some of their fabulous whole grain breads.

Casey house

We're not allowed inside the house, which I believe is the caretaker's space and offices now.
It makes a stunning centerpiece to the property which looks across to the Jamestown Island and bridge. What a spot!

    These pages make me smile, Janet. Love plant sales, and with the added bonus of this old farm, it is twice the fun.

    Another interesting page. The belted pigs are probably British Saddlebacks. I'm glad the heritage farm museums are maintaining the older varieties of livestock which modern agribusiness has replaced with less colorful but more efficient hybrids.

    Charming little page on Saunderstown Janet. Just arrived home this afternoon. The Karlsruhe Meet was awesome. Also enjoyed some time in the Netherlands.

    I'd say the belted cattle were probably Galloways. Not up with pigs. Quite interested in the old dry stone walls, the early settlers used to make them in Sth Aust Barossa Valley.

    Weren't the rhododendrons in magnificent bloom on the way down? Mom and I were in Newport -- heavy sea mist -- but loved the flowers!
