My Bicycle Ride at Duke’s Farm in Sussex County by Barbara Dexter
As the rain continues to come down, I am remembering the bicycle tour I had at Duke’s Farm in Sussex County yesterday. The farm encompasses about 2700 acres of land. It has it’s own power that is generated from a “sun farm”. A system of photovoltaic cells that harness power from the sun. They offer many environmentally friendly or green educational programs. The vehicles the farm uses are all powered by electricity.
Enough of that and ow to the pictures. The scenery is incredible.
The plants are incredible considering it is off season.
A beautiful waterfall and lake. The waterfall is turned on twice a day. You can see there is an algae problem in the lake. Well at least something grows there, I guess.
I thought the cat should have at least been given a name. I think I will take it upon myself to call him Tuck. The first three letters stand for the unknown cat.
There are all sorts of animals depicted at the base of the statue. The statue can be seen near the hay barn.
There is a farmer’s market that sells the crops produced at the farm just beyond the banners. I personally like the owl banner.
The farm was fairly easy to access as it is located off route 206. Route 206 connects with Route 202 and then route 287. If you can find your way to route 287, you are almost there.
