Experience the presence of the past at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm. Owned and operated by the Morris County Park Commission (www.morrisparks.net), this 200-acre National Register Historic Site is complete with farm animals, crops, period furnishings, and machinery from the turn of the 20th century. The spirit of life is evoked through daily activities presented on the farm, the farmhouse, and at the Foster family home, The Willows. Staff dressed in period attire perform a daily regimen of farming by raising livestock and crops using methods that follow the same scheduled as noted in Charles Foster's journal. Talk with the farm staff and participate in daily chores, such as butter churning, corn cracking, and harness cleaning. You will learn firsthand the important role the farm foreman and his family played at the restored farmhouse.
