About Coverdale Farms:
This 19th century operating farm is an educational resource. The farm complex includes a stone bank barn built in the late 1700's, farm equipment, a house, several outbuildings, acres of corn, soybean and hay; and an area for livestock. Though not generally open to the public, 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. Programs offer close-up, hands-on experiences with the livestock including cows, chickens, pigs, sheep and others. Demonstration plots 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.
