Former Dairy Farm Where George Washington Once Bought Cheese Offers Historic Style, Modern Comforts
New York Ag Connection - 05/24/2023

From September to November 1778, during the American Revolution, General George Washington based the Continental Army in and around the upstate New York town of Pawling. Washington decided on Pawling because he needed a location from which he could easily move his troops up to New England, down to New York City, or over to the Hudson Valley. The troops were garrisoned on Quaker Hill, and Nord Farm, on Pawling’s Quaker Hill Road, was then a dairy farm, having been built in 1759. The farmwife was an accomplished cheesemaker, and Washington visited the farm in the autumn of 1778 and bought 16 shillings worth of cheese.

Today, Nord Farm may not produce cheese, but it does offer authentic antique farmhouse charm in harmony with high-end finishes and modern luxuries. Spread over almost 12 rolling acres, the old dairy farm is for sale asking $2.4 million. Jody Rosen and Mary Palmerton at Houlihan Lawrence hold the listing.

The 3,360-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home is set back from the road via a long driveway lined with sugar maples and stone walls. Inside are period features like wooden beams, refurbished chestnut floors, the original staircase, and a couple of stone fireplaces.
