Coverdale Farm
Coverdale Farm is a 19th century operating farm that serves as an educational resource. The farm complex includes a stone bank barn built in the late 1700s, farm equipment, a house, several outbuildings, acres of corn, soybean and hay; and an area for livestock. School students and participants in seasonal programs learn about the farm cycle of life, the origin of food and natural fibers, the significance of living soil, and our dependence upon soil, water, plants and animals for survival. Close-up, hands-on experiences will be provided with the use of livestock including a cow, goat, pig, sheep and others. Demonstration plots will emphasize organic and no-till farming practices while other lands will be left undisturbed and managed for the benefit of wildlife. Surrounding land features old-growth forest and Burrows Run, one of Delaware's cleanest waterways, runs through the tract.
