Why the name “Capon Crossing?”

The Cacapon River (often shortened to “Capon” and pronounced kay-pin) runs right through the middle of our 555 acres. In order to visit the whole farm, you’ve got to cross the Capon.

We are so lucky to be on the banks of this river, which is home to an abundance of wildlife, including bald eagles, otters, herons, beavers, kingfishers, ospreys, hawks, minks, and so many different kinds of fish, turtles, snakes, birds, and insects. It is truly amazing. We have placed our farm in a conservation easement, which means it will never be developed by real estate or commercial building.
