Welcome to Historic Longstreet Farm located in Holmdel Park!

Longstreet farm is a "living history" farm in Holmdel, Monmouth County, NJ. Take in the sights, smells & sounds of rural life in the 1890s. Watch the costumed interpretive staff plow, plant, harvest, cook & clean, honoring the methods & customs of the 19th century. Visit the blacksmith (demonstrations every 2rd Sunday 1-3PM), step inside the massive Dutch Barn, help milk a cow or grind corn, pet the horses, mules, sheep, hogs & chickens that roam the grounds. There's something going on at the farm in all seasons - just as there would be in a 19th century farm.

The farm is open daily from 10am to 4pm and from 9am to 5pm between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Admission & parking is free.

The posted coordinates will bring you to the visitor center and a standard micro hide. The cachetainer is small enough for only the log, a pencil fragment and the smallest of small swag but I managed to squeeze in a FTF prize. Enjoy the farm & happy hunting!

My first Navicache that lead me to another one. Coords were right on and the area is great to explore and walk the trails.

I wanted to get this one last time I was here, but the farm was open and the area was sort of occupied by the farm mistress. Today I went back and got it - didn't even use my GPS this time as I sort of figured the general area. My first navicache - thanks :)

My first Navicache, and a FTF at that. :-) Really enjoyed the visit to the farm. Decided to spend a few minutes and walk around the grounds afterwards. Took lots of great pictures. TFTC
