Dear Kelly and Kingsley,
Every time I pick up my CSA, I wonder about the history of Barberry Hill Farm. How did it start? Thanks, and I loved my share box!
That's a great question. Barberry Hill Farm has been in our family since it was built back in 1909.
Kingsley's great uncle, Henry Warren Goddard was a circuit court judge in New York City. As a little boy, he and his five brothers and one sister had summered in Madison in the mid 1800's.
Just after the turn of the century, he bought this property, while his brother Ralph Goddard bought the property across the street. They both built summer and weekend homes. When Henry Warren Goddard died, Kingsley's father, Richard Mason Goddard Jr.. bought it from Henry's widow.
While it has been a gentleman's farm, Barberry Hill Farm was evolved into a working farm by Kingsley when his father died in 1987.
Here are some family photographs of the farm and Madison from the early days.

Welcome to Summer (almost). We have been busy, getting ready for our farm share community and farmstand. We look forward to seeing our old CSA friends while making new ones, and for those who have not been by the farm, here a few recent photos.

CSA Members who visit the farm this time of year are amazed by the acceleration of activities. Every day brings combinations of new growth, new projects, even new births. These pictures from past years get us all excited to tackle the splendor and challenges of life on the farm.
And studies, such as the recent one that concluded "Bad diets are killing more people globally than tobacco" (quoted in The Guardian <https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/apr/03/bad-diets-killing-more-people-globally-than-tobacco-study-finds>) make the work that much more meaningful.
