DVOOR FARM RENOVATION
Hunterdon Land Trust is working diligently to rejuvenate the Dvoor Farm as a fabulous destination site where everyone can enjoy all the richness it has to offer.
An Ongoing Project
Our efforts to revamp the farm are already well underway. With our Master Plan and Historic Site Management Plan as guides, HLT intends to make the Dvoor Farm not just a place where long-time residents recall “the good old days,” but a place where families and friends can make new memories celebrating life’s milestones or enjoying an array of educational or recreational activities.
So far, we completed work on a new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant bathroom and ramp to allow everyone access to the historic stone farm house. Our refurbished wagon house continues to serve as an ideal venue for small educational programs, events and our winter Farmers’ Market.
We continue applying for grants and seeking funds to improve the farm: sensitively rehabilitating the barns to create event spaces for public and private use (including an educational center); adding safer ways to enter, exit and move about the property; adding amenities like restrooms and signs; and improving the farm’s natural resources with better stormwater management strategies, restoring pollinator meadows, and rejuvenating the old-growth forest.
A Landmark Revitalized, a Promise Fulfilled
Once completed, this project will reap a host of benefits to the public and HLT. Visitors can enjoy an array of recreational and educational activities on the farm. Rehabilitating the property will allow us to take a major step toward building our future financial stability, providing us with additional revenue streams to do more to protect the places you love in the Hunterdon County area. And, with a revitalized destination site in the heart of Hunterdon County, we’ll be better able to grow our community and engage our audience with our mission.
More than 20 years ago, the community banded together to preserve this important part of our collective story. Now, we seek to fulfill the promise of the Dvoor Farm. We seek to establish a place that honors and celebrates what Hunterdon County best represents, not just for now, but for the next generation and the one after that. We ask you to help write the next chapters in this ongoing story. Stay tuned for information about this project and how you can make a difference.
