Barn at Isaac Farm

Uploaded: July 17, 2012 03:36:10


The owners of this farm came from Brooklyn, New York fifty years ago. They LOVE living here in very rural Haycock Pennsylvania, and that love is reflected in EVERYTHING on the property.
The couple has meticulously maintained all of the original farm buildings--barn, potting and storage sheds, smoke houses, pergola, and their beautiful rustic home.
The gardens are extraordinary.
The barn is a large bank barn with recessed forebay; the main barn structure is stone. One of the hay mows has been converted to an artist's studio. The barn dates back to 1805.
