Seed House – Windows caught enough light in the fall that the older employees, who’d earned sit-down jobs cleaning and sorting seed, could see. Due to the flammable dust created continuously by the work (think of cotton seed heads), no artificial light was allowed. The metal roof is new—the slate under the belfry is original and covered the roof until 2005, when it became too expensive to maintain. The Seed House is used now for storage and still needs some work inside.

    Hi, Is Fordhook Farm open to visitors? Is the Nursery open to retail sales? I’m very happy that you moved to Pa. Thank You.
