Hopewell Hill Farm is the centerpiece of the Hopewell Historic District, which was listed on the National Registry as a community effort to preserve the rural historic character of the Tweed Creek Valley. The historic district encompasses our farm and ten other historic homes and commemorates the enterprises of the Scots-Irish Dickey family in the early 1800s.
The borough of Hopewell included cotton mills, a grist mill, post office and general store, a Presbyterian parsonage, a lyceum, and a boy's academy, all of which are now private homes. A narrow gauge railroad, locally known as "The Peachy", ran through the valley connecting Oxford to Peach Bottom. A pleasant stroll of about a mile will take you down the valley and through this historic area.
The young at heart of all ages will enjoy our warm and friendly hilltop farmhouse built by the Dickey family in 1832. One of our two cozy rooms awaits your visit to our working farm, which has been in the family for over a century. Come to explore, play, or just relax.
Our farm is situated on 95 acres of rolling fields and woodlands with trails and streams. Horses, cattle, sheep, chickens, cats, and two large but friendly dogs occupy the grounds. Kids are welcome and Pets are welcome, too.
Enjoy a full country breakfast in the dining room, or on our terrace, overlooking the Hopewell valley and the Tweed Creek. Breakfast features fresh eggs from our free-range chickens, coffee, tea, juice, fruit, and home-baked goodies.
