Hemming Farm is 100 acres in size that consists of approximately 40 acre wooded and 60 acre fields.  Previously, the farm was used as a horse farm that focused on pasturing and hay production.  Since the mid 1990's the farm has been owned by Sullivan ARC, an agency that provides support services to individuals living with Developmental and Cognitive disabilities. It is currently being used for recreational and environmental educational purposes.  The fields have been dormant for the last 15 years, except for areas that are currently being used for a vegtable garden and outdoor activities in a pavillion area. The areas currently in use are a small potion of available space.  There is a 12 box stall horse stable that was recently reroofed that can be used for a variety of purposes.
