THE HISTORY OF SHARP FARM
I bought Cobble Hill in 1984 with the intention of teaching hang gliding there. As we cleared the flatter areas on the north side of the hill of small trees that had grown into the former cow pastures there, we began to think about a cash crop we could plant around the landing zones to help pay taxes and other expenses and that would not injure errant pilots. Sharp Farm was born.
We started out planting 200 trees in 1984. Then 400, then 800. Then the drought of 1988 killed our entire planting of 1,000 trees. We devised a method of keeping track of newly planted trees for watering with multi-colored plastic flags that tell us what year the tree was transplanted into the field from our nursery. You'll see them in the fields. We started selling trees choose and cut in 1995 and built our barn in 2009. We began offering Sharp Farm as a wedding venue in 2015.
