Shenango Pines Farm
When you round the bend on Pew make sure you crack your window and turn off the radio so you can hear the crunch of the gravel on the road. That's how you'll know that you're close to the magic that is Shenango Pines Farm. With wide open fields, wildflowers, towering trees and a pond, you're sure to fall in love with the rolling terrain and clean air. Mark's visions for his property is lovely. He has combined manicured lawn and meadows of native grass perfectly in a design aesthetic that is both clean and welcoming. I was lucky to be able to watch Red Fox trot through the property, looking perfectly at home.
