  • Miss Caroline Foster bequeathed "Fosterfields" to the Morris County Park Commission in 1979 to pass on the Living Historical Farm her family lived on for 98 years. This working, living historical farm is on the west side of Morris Township, since 1760. Paul Revere's grandson, Joseph Warren Revere, purchased the farm from Jonathan Ogden in 1854.
    This farm is not a replica of the original farm, it is the actual farm as it was in history. It allows the public to see how the farm was run, with fields, and livestock as well as grounds/gardens and original structures.
    The Willows is a Gothic Revival home, or gentleman's Farm, on the grounds and can be toured by the public.
  • The Morris County Park Commission hosts a Farmers' Market every second Sunday of the month from January through May. Held at the Fosterfields Living Historical Farm, the next market is scheduled for Sunday, Feb 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market features fresh local food including artisan breads, meats, cheeses, honey, baked goods and winter produce. It's a great way to support local farmers and food artisans and enjoy a day on the farm!
