Welcome to Arasapha Farm located in Glen Mills Pennsylvania. This a true working farm that has been in the Bates family since 1952. The lovely farm house overlooking approximately 80 acres next to Middletown Rd (Rt 352) has a corner stone dating back to 1816.The name "Arasapha" is derived from Mrs. Bates great grandfather Abraham Blakeley's fabric mills which produced cloth of stripes, denim and ticking from the mid 1800's to the 1940's in Chester, Pennsylvania.
The farm today raises Shropshire sheep and wild game birds, pheasants, quail and chukar partridge.
The Shropshire sheep are raised for their excellent qualities for food and fleece.
The fleece is spun, dyed and for sale on the farm
