Preserved Farmland and Open Space
Serosun Farms Estate includes 300 acres of preserved farmland and restored upland and wetland prairie, savannah woodlands with walking trails, and stocked fishing ponds providing a beautifully maintained pastoral setting for the homes that will reside within the community. Our open space reflects the historical natural prairie ecosystems that were once present in this area and will be used to provide natural habitats, recreation, and buffer zones for the site. A recreational trail system will run through and connect the open spaces. An eight mile trail system provides a shared use environment for the community to explore the natural areas and provide recreation. It is intended to support hiking, jogging, biking and equestrian uses. Fitness stations will be located along the trails.
Working Sustainable Farm
Direct from the field to your dinner plate, enjoy healthy sustainable food with a freshness, flavor and tradition missing from the mass-produced items stocked by conventional grocery stores. At its core, Serosun Farms is a working sustainable farm that promotes local farming, healthy living and an appreciation for fresh, organic foods. An on-site farmers market will feature grass-fed meat, produce, herbs and other specialty items. Harvests will tempt cooks and food aficionados with regional, specialty and gourmet items. Presently the farm uses a hay, corn and soybean rotation and will transition to hay production. The hay products will supply the on-site equestrian center, local stables and dairy farms as well as rehabilitate the soil and start the sustainable certification process. From this start the farm will expand its program to include grass-fed beef and an initial selection of produce and herbs. The vision for the farm includes: * Grass farming, including hay and silage for horses and livestock * Grass-fed beef and other specialty livestock * Free-range poultry * Fruit trees, including apple, pear, plum and cherry * Berries, including raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries and blueberries * Nuts and specialty crops such as asparagus and rhubarb * Vegetables * Fresh herbs * Cut flowers * Prairie seed, honey products and other specialty items
