Brookhaven Mill Farm

Brookhaven Mill Farm is an 1880's historic farm that has a Colonial-style home, large barn, and 6 outbuildings, some of which are usable. One of these buildings, the corn crib, has been re-purposed into "Charlie's Farm Store", and carries goods from the farm such as eggs and butter, as well as other farm and country-themed items from nearby farms. The farm has friendly barnyard animals: Donkey, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs and ducks that are available to pet and feed treats. The grounds are also available as a wedding venue, artists gathering and educational farm tours. A Farmstay B&B is scheduled to open by 2020.
