About The Farm:
Swans Trail Farms is owned and operated by Ben and Carol Krause and their family. It is our mission at Swans Trail Farms to provide our customers with a wonderful experience and a peek into our farm life.   We try to create an atmosphere where people can be together for fun and celebration in a beautiful outdoor setting.

In 1984 Ben and Carol bought the Staswick dairy farm from Sid and Marguerite Staswick. The Farm had been in the Staswick family since the early 1900's, being operated as a dairy since the 1920's. Gentle Ben (as he is known around the valley) operated the dairy, renaming it Swans Trail Farms, and building upon what the Staswicks had established as a quality dairy with a fine herd of cows.

In November 1997 the Krauses sold the milking cows with the idea of concentrating on opening their farm to the public for all of the seasonal activities. This change has enabled them to have more time with their family which has been a very welcome and important change. When you visit the farm you will still see lots of farm animals. Although we no longer have dairy animals we keep goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and on occasion kittens and puppies for your farm enjoyment.

The Farm at Swans Trail has been hosting weddings for the past decade.  The site includes a refinished old barn, a waterfall, pond and large yard enclosed by an apple tree fence.  In 2012 we opened our new indoor reception hall providing a beautiful rain or shine option for any special event.  On site catering kitchen and modern ADA restroom facilities complete our space.
