Lusscroft Farm is iconic of our vanishing rural heritage, holding a unique place in the Garden State's agricultural history. It embraces some of our most inspiring scenic vistas, intriguing geology and interesting topography. It has a promising potential for passive recreational and educational activities  If its attributes were sympathetically enhanced and properly marketed, then Lusscroft could become a thriving destination in the growing market for agri-tourism, eco-tourism, and heritage tourism. more info

The Heritage and Agriculture Association (H & AA) is working to stabilize and then restore the neglected buildings of this agriculturally significant gem. The goal of the association, as stated in a Memorandum of Understanding with the NJDEP is to create and maintain an agricultural heritage center with emphasis and opportunities for education in the dairy industry, outdoor recreation, historical interpretation, equine trails, heirloom gardening, forestry, maple sugaring, and all phases of farming from organic gardening to marketing value added products.

The property is located on Neilson Road in Wantage Township, New Jersey and contains 23 buildings including the Turner Mansion (a.k.a. Manorhouse), the Manager's Dwelling, the spectacular Outlook Lodge and the dairy barn and farm structures. The land includes fields and pastures, ponds, woodland and various barnyards.
