Steve and Bridget have been married for 19 years and are raising their 6 children on their family's farm. After serving in the military--Steve in the Marine Corps and Bridget in the Army Nurse Corps, they decided to move back to Steve's family's farm to raise their family. Steve and Bridget have 6 children who on the summer months also help on the farm. The Tennes family and Country Mill Farm strive to "Glorify God by facilitating family fun on the farm and feeding families." As a working farm, the farm is open to the public from the end of July-October. We grow blueberries, peaches, apples, pumpkins, squash and ornamental corn. There is a farm market that makes hot fresh donuts, pies, presses cider, and has a winery. Customers are able to come purchase a bag to pick fruit, enjoy a walk on the farm and make special memories.
During the open farm season there are alpacas, chickens and sometimes turkeys. You may bring pets to come with you. If it is a service animal, they are welcome to go with you around the farm. Although we love animals, the USDA restricts access to pets on our farm. You are welcome to walk your pets around the spacious grassy parking lot.
When we are not traveling ourselves, we are on the farm at the Country Mill. We have a beautiful landscape--an orchard of trees, a serene pond to picnic at and one of our favorite things--running trails--some that can be challenging with a few steep hills, or your choice of a smoother peaceful walk on the farm.
