Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work to save this important historic site from the ravages of time, neighbors of the farm incorporated in 2015 to provide the governing body of Lower Makefield Township with sensible solutions for restoration.
We've consistently grown thanks to the helping hands and caring hearts of our supporters who BELIEVE in preservation.
Our mission is the perpetual preservation and responsible stewardship of the farm settled by Thomas Janney & family in 1683.
Now owned by Lower Makefield Township and named in honor of its' former owners Thomas & Alice Patterson, the farms' compelling history, rich natural resources and eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places make it an irreplaceable Pennsylvania landmark.
Patterson farm is a taxpayer-owned historic site, with roots in Native American, Quaker and agricultural heritage. The farm is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
