In 1919 the Fox family transformed the former plantation into a modern dairy farm. They developed a purebred milk-producing cow registered as the Cocumcussoc [sic] Ayrshire and operated a Wickford retail milk route and an ice cream and milk bar. Smith's Castle was a dairy farm from 1919 to 1937.
We will be celebrating the harvest season, with a focus on our history as a dairy farm.
More details coming soon!
Children's games, music, the bounty of the harvest. All this and apple crisp too! Relax and enjoy a fine autumn day!
