Reviews for OLD PINE FARM NATURAL LANDS TR INC
This is a gem of Nature's space, so well cared for. It's also a time machine. Old Pine Farm Natural Lands boasts a meadow where you can see the prickly pear cacti that Native Americans planted hundreds of years. It's a marvel to experience history that is still alive and blooming.
Old Pine Farm is an oasis of woods and meadow and marsh and Big Timber Creek. And the future is exciting... the 300 year old house will soon be included and will offer opportunities for organic gardening, an environmental center and/or community center. So come and join our wonderful community of people in this adventure,
Old Pine Farms offers a chance to close the door on the noisy chaos of our daily lives, and to spend a little time in quiet and natural beauty. This place is in the heart of suburbia, moments away from malls and interstates. Yet, here thanks to the hard work of a core of dedicated volunteers, you can walk through meadows and replenish your soul as you contemplate the same beauty that restored Walt Whitman as he wandered here beside Big Timber Creek.
This is a small but very dedicated group of volunteers dedicated to preserving our precious New Jersey open spaces and in, particular, a beautiful tract in South Jersey called Old Pine Farm. They work tirelessly to enhance and preserve the area and their monthly nature walks are a delight for both adults and children and promote a respect, love and sense of wonder for nature.
Old Pine Farm Natural Lands trust is an oasis of beauty in Deptford Township, NJ. Rare and naturally growing native plants abound. A beautiful place to walk and contemplate, and appreciate the beauty that is there. The land trust is along Big Timber Creek, so there's an opportunity for canoeing and kyaking. Soon the ripe persimmons will fall, a treat. Our deer population is in check, as there is a healthy understory. Old Pine Farm natural Lands trust is open to the public for walkers, bicycle riders, and dog walkers.
Old Pine Farm, and the people who are actively involved in this organization are a pleasure. The lands are gorgeous .. who would expect a rather extensive land trust (about 40 acres or so, mostly on Big Timber Creek) in Deptford? Their members are dedicated to its preservation and care, and I have learned a lot about nature in the years I've been a member. George and Lillian Willoughby, original members and founders, had a vision of land in trust for the people who use it. I think they would be proud of the legacy they have left, and the excellent way it is led and managed.

The organization consists of volunteers who serve as dedicated stewards of the indigenous species and habitats within the forty acres
Thanks. hooverteacher! Come back soon!
I once was walking the trails here and met of with, of all people, Ole " Blue Eyes " Frank Sinatra. He was senile as phuck, talking to himself about aliens and he even wore his Depends on the outside of his pants. Piss and shat stains all over them. He thought he was still in Hoboken, NJ Way to disappoint, Frank. You goofy old phuck.
Old Pine Farm in Deptford, NJ is a little bit of heaven plunked down on the bank of Big Timber Creek. Forest, meadow, stream and wetlands environments are all included in the 32 acre main property at the foot of Rankin Ave in the Blackwood Terrace section of Deptford Twp.
The trails are great, with a gentle slope leading through the forest down to the meadow and creek. Whether for nature study, exercise or just relaxation, you will enjoy a stroll here.
Try it -- you'll like it!
