About the Farmers
Hank Barlow, Farm Manager
In 2002 Hank retired and began to do the tasks on his ‘Honey Do List’.
This list consisted of one item ‘FIX THE FARM’
And Fix The Farm He Has.
Hank with the help of an EQUIP grant, and Ben Hoskins, his stepson, have beaten back wild rose bushes, bittersweet vine, milkweed and other invasive species and have fenced long fallow pastures and hay land.
Formally a beef farm, as Hank and Donna have aged they have switched to raising sheep as they are easier to take care of than cows. Their flock of Katahdins are used primarily for meat production and the Romneys provide lovely wool.
