Horseshoe Bay Farms prepares to welcome visitors

People could be attending events at Horseshoe Bay Farms as soon as this summer. The historic farm site located along Horseshoe Bay Road in Egg Harbor will be dotted with gardens and refurbished buildings based on its master plan recently unveiled to the public. As it raises funds to make some of the plans a reality, Horseshoe Bay Farms Executive Director Drew Richmond has been collecting stories and recruiting volunteers to shed some light on the property that had been closed to the public prior to its sale in 2018. Richmond hopes tours, farmer’s markets, and activities will raise awareness for the site that was once the home of a state-of-the-art dairy farm and an orchard that made it one of the largest seasonal employers in the county.

Richmond says tours could start as soon as Memorial Day weekend with hopes of generating additional interest in the site. Horseshoe Bay Farms approved their master plan in 2020, two years after a non-profit organization was formed to preserve the site and offer educational opportunities.
