Reviews for: Sweet Sourland Farms
Hopewells Best Kept Secret
By: John Fox (Jan 24, 2010)
The first time I set foot on The Katzenbach farm I knew I was in a special place. The land continues to grow towards a sustainable marvel. There are many beautiful buildings built by Chuck from wood from his own land, cut with his own sawmill. Some of these buildings produce electricity and heat water by the power of The Sun. There are goats about and bees abuzz. There are Maple trees and Maple Syrup. Que Delicioso! Inside the barn you will find an art studio full of some inspiring work. So if you are looking for anything from goats meat to honey to maple syrup to locally harvested lumber to art, Sourland Farm is the place.

Where is it? Can't find anything about it online. We live in Doylestown, PA and are looking for organic fruti/veggies and grass fed meats.
Terrific local products!

My family has enjoyed the Katzenbachs' honey and syrup for years, and my husband regularly uses their lumber for projects in and out of the home.
We depend on our local farmers for the great food and products they provide. Sweet Sourland Farm is no exception, and the Katzenbachs have been shining symbols of great land stewardship and historic preservation, too.
A Great Source of Locally Produced Wood

As a Princeton-based builder, have been using the Katzenbach's wood for a variety of projects for the last five years. Whether its the white pine grown on site (the clearest I have seen, on par with the old-growth pine used for flooring in historic houses), or rare woods I have brought to be custom-milled, myself and my clients are always impressed with their product. Further, the Katzenbach compound is an architectual marvel in its own right, with many of the outbuildings constructed of their wood.
The honey and maple syrup are also excellent, and I am looking forward to trying the grass-fed goat as well!
great local products!

We are regular customers for syrup. It is simply some of the best we have had. Last year I purchased a case and gave out as Christmas presents. Looking forward to starting a project to take advantage of the local lumber. Friends have purchased lumber and have been very happy indeed. Imagine, building something with lumber grown, harvested and milled in Hopewell! Now that's sustainable!
