Circa 1904 Cedar Gate Farm in Denville was used as a dairy farm and originally owned by Eugene Parks and his family. Carried down from generation to generation and being sold by the late Dr. William Rodda in 2016 to the Denville family named Fred and Larysa Breem.
The Breem family recently gave the "Red Barn" a facelift and have brought life back to its pastures as promised to the original remaining family members. They currently run the farm raising baby chicks and selling cage free - free range eggs weekly. They also have produced and sold over 40 skeins of wool from their sheep herd in 2019.
Along with the chickens and the sheep they also raise dwarf Nigerian goats who provide daily roadside entertainment to local commuters by playing on their wooden playset outside the red barn.

Melvin is our mascot here at Cedar Gate Farm. We all enjoyed watching him grow from the size of a shoe to a mighty heafty goofball here at the farm. Being bottle fed, along with his two twin sisters that were born the previous year, these South Down Baby Doll Sheep have been given the opportunity to become very docile and gentle to the human touch. Melvin has gotten into some trouble, perhaps like playful young boys do, but we love Melvin and his Koala Bear face no matter what mischief he gets himself into. The phrase, "Oh Melvin", is used here on the property DAILY!!
