Our home farm, the original Lowland Farm, consists of 300 acres in Warwick, NY, in the lower Hudson Valley. The home farm is a mixture of rolling upland pastures and woods, and bottom land (lowland) along the Pochuck Creek next to the Black Dirt region of Pine Island. In 2007, Will Brown and Barbara Felton, Lowland’s owners, put Lowland Farm under the protection of Warwick’s Preservation of Development rights program (see below), placing a permanent easement on the property and securing their responsibility as stewards of the land.
As the cattle herd grew more land was needed. In 2011 and 2016 they purchased land in adjacent Vernon township in New Jersey to create Lowland South, a half-mile away from the home farm (an easy walk for cows), Lowland South consists of upland hillside with high fields within New Jersey Highlands’ preservation area and has easements prohibiting development. Much of the land had been neglected and required extensive efforts in order to restore pasturing. Today these lands are increasingly rich pastureland.
