A Brief History of the Homestead Animal Farm
The Sullivan Farm was originally owned by Dennis Sullivan who willed it to his brother Daniel Sullivan. Daniel Sullivan willed the farm to his children Jack, Mary, and Nellie. Nellie ended up with the farm and left it to her two daughters when she died. Helen Daley and Ruth Harmann then owned the farm. Helen Daley’s children sold their portion of the farm to a developer and Ruth Harmann’s portion of the farm is owned today by Mark and Barbara Harmann. The Sullivan Farm is now Homestead Animal Farm.
