Hide-Away Farm was owned and farmed by the Gray family, who
also owned and farmed Shady Lane Farm, for
about 145 years. During that time, they kept dairy cattle and
farmed various types of fruit for their livelihood. We acquired
this beautiful farm in 1983. We converted the 100+ year-old
dairy barn to a modern equine facility, while accenting the
antique woodwork and hand-hewn beams.
As you look at this photo, you can just see the entrance to
the old cattle lane to the southeast (right)) of the barn. You
can also see the pond put in by a previous owner and (on the
left) the elegant, antiquarian farmhouse with its recently
rennovated, attached shed. Another item of interest is the
Periwinkle Road, an old carriage road, leading north to Shady
Lane Farm. Both Shady Lane Farm and Hide-Away Farm are now
under conservation easement, so their natural and agricultural
beauty is assured for generations to come.
This is a new site and we'll be doing a lot with it, so you
may want to stop by once and a while to see what's going
Hide-Away Farm is a
