Year Purchased: 1976
About: Skarship Farm consists of four contiguous farms purchased by Ole Skaarup in 1976. He developed one of the finest Angus herds in the country at a time when Angus cows were being bred to improve the beef quality and production. Now, the Angus logo signifies the highest quality beef. Our herd was dispersed in the 80's and the Skaarup family has kept the land in farming by leasing it to local farmers who grow hay, corn and soybeans and pasture their animals on the 800 pristine acres.
Ole Skaarup, a Danish immigrant and shipowner decided that he wanted to own land so that 'when all else failed, we'd have a place to grow potatoes.' Although the soil does not lend itself to growing potatoes on a large scale we have been known to harvest 1000 pounds of delicious spuds for the family and winter storage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage at Skarship Farm is a great place to 'unplug' from your busy life. Families with children will appreciate being able to send the kids outside where they are safe from traffic and can enjoy all the entertainment the natural surroundings have to offer. Our pool is fenced and we require that children are accompanied by an adult at all times. The tennis court is a great place to practice new bicycle skills as well as tennis of course. Our guests are most welcome to venture out onto our 800 acre farm, on mowed trails minimizing tick exposure. The lake is full of wide mouth bass, but we ask that you 'catch and release' and take just one back to the cottage to sample. There is no reason be be confined to the beds in the cottage either. You are welcome to pitch a tent outside and experience sleeping under the stars.
