At Carriage Farm we work hard to exemplify the three main pillars of sustainability: people, planet, and prosperity. Our 19-acre mixed use property is home to a varied group of tenants, and it is this diversity that has created the supportive business culture, which in-turn has enhanced and engaged the local community. We take pride in having developed the site in a manner sensitive to the environment and to its agricultural heritage.
Ed & Sue Clerico
An agricultural engineer, environmentalist, entrepreneur and farmer – Ed has spent his career working in the water resource business focusing on water conservation through reuse.
A land use planner, nature lover, animal welfare advocate and traveler – Sue’s career has spanned multiple disciplines of planning from environmental, housing, transportation and as LEED AP overseeing the LEED certification process for the Carriage Farm office addition.
Together we share the belief that people desire a sense of connection. Connection to others, to nature, to their work and to self. We built Carriage Farm based on this ideal.
A RICH HISTORY, A VIBRANT FUTURE
The Carriage Farm property dates to the 18th century when Dutch immigrants settled here and began the long rich history of farming the land. In 1986 the current owner bought the property and blended its agricultural history with his vision for the future by using one of the oldest farmhouses in Hillsborough as the foundation to create a modern business complex while keeping the existing farm structures. Recently renovated, the 250-year-old New World Dutch Barn is now home to a local micro-brewery where its history and interior beauty can be shared with the local community. Today the property shows as a commercial office building when seen from County Route 514, and a restored farmstead and active farm when viewed from Clerico Lane.
OUR ROOTS GROW DEEP
The land has been in agricultural use for over three hundred years. Today, regenerative agriculture coexists with commercial activities at Carriage Farm, providing immeasurable benefits to employees and visitors as well as the surrounding community. It is a special place where you can go to work and see animals grazing in a pasture outside your window instead of contrived landscapes and a sea of parking.
