  • Branching out, under bright lights

    You know that tingling excitement you get when you try something on for the first time, especially when it fits and what looks back at you in the mirror looks pretty good? Yeah, you know. That’s kind of what last week felt like. The week’s events started last fall with an email from Quarry Farm […]

  • Flowing back in time through two townships

    There’s a lot of history in and around The Quarry Farm, not to mention up the road. On the opposite side of the block stands a log home constructed by Tom McCullough.

  • Life lessons

    One of the primary goals at The Quarry Farm is to increase understanding, to educate. Sure, we provide sanctuary to animals in need, have established a preserve for the area’s wildlife and offer folks the chance to just kick their shoes off and relax. But, during every interaction that takes place in the name of […]

  • Spot the frog

    Over the past few weeks, we’ve spent a fair amount of time kicking around the wilder areas of The Quarry Farm, traipsing about under an increasingly dense canopy of hardwoods and skirting the edges of the quarry where what appears to be solid ground is, more often than not, more akin to thick, black soup.
