About Dale or Martha Hershey
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.
Dale or Martha Hershey purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why Dale or Martha Hershey chose Ronks
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.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
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.

For our family of 19 ranging from age two to grandparents, this property was perfect! The Hersheys are very hospitable and the house was not only professionally furnished but also provided more than we could have expected (e.g., a dining room table to seat over 20!).
The outdoors provided ample space for our athletic and very competitive children and grandchildren for games such as volleyball, kickball and Capture the Flag. Everyone of us appreciates so much the Christian atmosphere, the farm environment with calves nearby, and the sights and sounds of the historic Strasburg Railroad.
All in all, we made MANY memories to cherish!
This is a wonderful property!
Beautifully, if simply, appointed...many amenities--the paper cups in all 3 bathrooms, plentiful towels...lots of space to relax, even for our large group of 19 which included 10 children 8 and under...riding toys galore, and the Yamaha drumset in the garage [I am a retired elementary music teacher] which we ALL tried out..the pregnant cows pasturing and feeding, the Strasburg steam engine a shoutout to history...we LOVED IT!
Great space for a large group! Very clean & comfortable! We really enjoyed our stay!
We enjoyed our stay! It’s a great space for a large group. It was very clean & comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. We never ran out of hot water. The kids enjoyed the toys that are there (both inside and out). It’s a beautiful yard. It’s a great location that’s close to local attractions. We enjoyed sitting outside on the porches and watching the train that passes by multiple times a day and the buggies. We would definitely stay again and we highly recommend it!
It was just what we needed.
Very well stocked and enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful property, had a great time... Highly recommended!
Very Clean and great for families! Wonderful
We have a new favorite rental for Sight & Sound trips. What a great home and very nice family. We rented the house with a few families and were amazed at the space and cleanliness. The kids played football, had smores, and just had fun. Even the teenagers....
We are now looking toward a fall rental and using the great location for field/amusement trips around the area.
We even converted a hotel-only friend to a hotel-only and ‘this beautiful house’ friend!
Thank you so much for a great experience,
Josh, Tammy, and friends!
We are located on a farm with the Strasburg Railroad passing through our farm and across from the Amaizing Maize Maze. Our farm house is located within four miles of Sight And Sound Theater and Outlet Shopping. The town of Intercourse is also located about four miles away with many small shoppes.
