<< Denise & Richard moved from central New Jersey to central upstate New York in 2003. They bought a 90-acre farm with a 200-year-old 12-room farmhouse. Repairs are constant - but it has the world's greatest front porch. After tearing down old paddocks, barbed-wire fencing, an old poultry shed & a dead tree, they installed French drains, nearly 1,000 feet of chain link fencing and lots of grass seed - for the hounds, of course.
<< The farm is split by a quiet road with 15 acres and a trout stream on one side, and 75 acres on the house side. When it’s not snowing, a Kubota 4630 tractor with a front-end loader and a 6' Bush-hog Squealer are used to clear the old hay & corn fields and maintain the land for the sighthound performance events. The panoramic views from the fields allow one to enjoy the serenity of the beautiful farm-speckled countryside.
<< A few Whippets currently hang out at Wolfhound. A gaggle of guinea fowl in various colors also resides on the farm -- the numbers of which change without notice. There is an endless variety of fascinating birds and wildlife around the property, which Denise tries to capture with her digital camera. She continues to write in several genres, including romantic fiction.
