Bogle Farm

Our Story


Meet the Bogles

For many of the past hundred years, the Farm was a place where the community gathered.  The original Farmhouse and Smokehouse were built in 1895 and for much of the 20th century the farm was a working, dairy farm offering local residents fresh dairy products. After several generations of various use, our family converted the property to a family-oriented, agriculturally oriented farm that enables our family and guests to experience an authentic, rural lifestyle in close proximity to a major city.  The Farm is a complete, sustainable environment with domestic animals, organic gardening of fruits, vegetables and flowers, honeybees, ponds teeming with fish, meadows, pastures surrounded by planted pine forests and hardwoods.
