About Us

 

 

When we bought the property it had a medium sized creek (named McGowan Creek) with a large ridge down the center.  After a few years a beaver family moved in and made the creek into a large series of ponds covering about 10 acres.  We thought this was neat, especially my husband and whatever keeps the male occupied makes him less likely to notice another horse snuck in.  During this time we were looking for a name for our farm.  We decided to go with a name that described the land.

 

Fen:  From Merriam-Webster, Etymology: Old English fenn: low land covered wholly or partly with water

 

Most people know what a Ridge is.

When I went to register the domain name I found that someone in New Hampshire had independently came up with the same name.  Here’s their site:
