Fox Chase Farm preview

The city of Philadelphia is filled with noises. From horns, screeching tires and even the occasional obscenity, it is hard to find serenity within city limits.

However, half an hour north of Center City lies Fox Chase Farm, the only working farm within city limits.  The area where Fox Chase Farm stands has been around since William Penn sold the land to Lord William Stanley of London in 1683. Today Fox Chase Farm is more of an educational farm than what a standard farm is considered. They have events throughout the year to help promote education on varying agricultural concepts.

This is a short preview of what will be a longer feature on Fox Chase Farm, brought to you by NEast Philly and Philadelphia Neighborhoods. You can read the rest here, and stay tuned for our full feature.
