Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My family has been farming in the Paradise area for 8 generations and I am the third generation to farm our home farm. Three generations of Hershey,s farm 180 acres growing corn, alfalfa, barley and soybeans. We use these crops to feed our 150 head of dairy animals.

Why the Owner Chose Ronks, PA, USA:
My family has helped farm the Willow Brook Farm since the 1960's. Willow Brook was built in 1867 by the Groff family. When the last surviving member was entering his final days he wanted our family to own Willow Brook as appreciation for all the time we had spent taking care of him. We bought the farm to expand our crop acres and to also provide additional housing for our cows.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Willow Brook was a upper class farmhouse at the turn of the century which hosted parties for the elite of the day. We have worked to keep that old feel, but with all the benefits of living in the twenty first century.
