About Caroline and David Owens
We are David and Caroline Owens, the family behind Owens Farm. We have three children, recently 'grown and flown'. Our farm boasts 112 acres of rolling pasture, with lovely views in all directions. A traditional red Pennsylvania Bank barn, pond, and classic white farmhouse complete the picture. We started farming on 13 acres in New Hampshire. We raised livestock for our own needs, tending our animals in a natural setting and avoiding chemicals and growth stimulants. It was only a matter of time before neighbors approached us, asking if we could raise and sell some extra animals. People were learning about the pitfalls of industrial agriculture, and seeking pasture-raised meat for their families. A business was born. By 2007, we were ready for a larger farm. A two-year search led to the state of Pennsylvania and the town of Sunbury. OUR BACKGROUNDS: Caroline is a former Vocational Agriculture teacher who worked in marketing communications and the equestrian travel business before starting her family. She holds a B.S. in Animal Science/Agricultural Education from Cornell University and an M.B.A. from Boston University. David is an engineer now running his own database and software consulting business. He earned his B.S. in Engineering from the University of Lowell and a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University.
Caroline and David Owens purchased this Guest House in 2008
Why Caroline and David Owens chose Sunbury
We knew this was our farm the minute we drove in the driveway. We were looking for a farm with we were raising grass-fed livestock. The more we saw, the better it looked: there were existing fencelines, a pond, interesting conservation areas to attract wildlife, space for an orchard and bees, barn space , and welcoming neighbors who were also farmers. Equally important, the folks around here appreciate a source of humanely raised, healthy meats.
What makes this Guest House unique
You will not feel like a number here (well, ok, maybe Number 1!). We have one rental space, and accommodate a single group at a time. We honor your privacy, but welcome you to join in the farm activities as time and interest allows. We will let you know what we plan on doing during your stay, but there is absolutely no pressure to '"get your hands dirty". This is not just a working farm, but also a lovely, peaceful place to unwind and watch the world go by. Roaming piglets, baahhing sheep, and crowing roosters will be your soundtrack.
