HOLMDEL, NJ - A stroll through the 9-acre living historic farm of Longstreet is a must do. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, you are taken back to the lives and farming practices from years ago.
Longstreet Farm continues to impress with the 'not to be missed' program for young children and everyone who watch historical lessons on shearing sheep. Classic horses and mules work their day and move folks around as they did in the 1800s. The clothing also takes you back in time. All of the folks working here are wearing period dress so you can see what life was like back then. This allows you to take a step back in time and experience the beauty of Longstreet Farm.
It's a beautiful spring day in 2017, but you wouldn't know it when you're walking with your family through Longstreet Farm. Here you travel back centuries to see that old and simple world, devoid of technology and distraction.
From oinking pigs to baaing sheep and peacocks on display, Holmdel's Longstreet farm has it all. Music plays from an accordion player and two ladies show children the old fashioned practice of hooking by tying fabric through a mesh to create designs. They can be reached at http://www.atharugs.com
While watching little ones enjoy learning this craft, you may be quickly distracted by oxen who traverse the property and plow the land.
Keep your camera close so you don't miss a thing and enjoy Holmdel Park's special version of time travel.
