November 12, 2017, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Garretson Farm
Come to an Open House at the historic Garretson Forge and Farm, listed on the National and State Register of Historic Places, one of the oldest historic sites in Bergen County. Settled in 1719, this Dutch Colonial homestead was home to six generations of the Garretson family. The homestead remains a rare surviving example of a simple farming life that was prevalent in the 1700s and 1800s. The heirloom gardens at Garretson continue an agricultural tradition. A variety of heirloom vegetables, all open-pollinated, are grown in the kitchen garden using organic and sustainable practices. Produce in season is donated to a local emergency food pantry. An extensive herb garden contains over 75 types of medicinal and culinary herbs that were grown in the seventeen and eighteen hundreds. Open every second and fourth Sunday of the month from March through November from 1pm to 4pm; for group tours at other times, please contact Pat at (551) 206-4380.
