It was a hee haw of good time as local residents of Northport, Huntington and Suffolk County gathered together for The 20th Annual Friends of The Farm Northport, New York Barn Dance on April 16, 2016 at the St. Philip Neri Parish Center in Northport, New York.
This festive event featured an assortment of great food from local cuisines, beer, wine, soda, coffee, dessert, door prizes and raffles.
Advance tickets were $50 per person, and tickets were $60 per person at the door. Friends of the Farm is a not-for-profit volunteer group, so all the proceeds made from the event go directly to feeding & caring for the sweet animals at Lewis Oliver Farm, and towards preserving the farm.
he historic Lewis Oliver Farm, located in Northport Village, NY, is a cherished community landmark dating back to the 1800’s. Once a working dairy, the farm is now home to Annabelle the cow, Tiny the pig, Ezra and Onyx the alpacas and friends including goats, sheep, geese, chickens, ducks, turkeys, peacocks, bunnies and cats.
Generations of families and friends from within and around the community continue the tradition of visiting the farm where they can spend time with the animals, browse through the Lewis Oliver Country Store and enjoy this uniquely special piece of Northport’s history.
The farm was privately owned up until 2007 when it was jointly purchased by the Town of Huntington and Suffolk County as a means to preserve it. The farm is managed by the volunteer members of Friends of the Farm and through their efforts, has remained opened for all to enjoy with no admission fees of any kind.
The farm is open 365 days a year, 7 days a week from dawn to dusk. The Lewis Oliver Country Store is open from early Spring to late Fall on Saturdays and Sundays between 10am-4pm.
