2017-06-17 - Hometown Histories (Stories Worth Remembering) - When Wayside Was Farmland - Dave Osborn and Mary Osborn Siver

At one time, most of New Jersey was farms (that is where the name the “Garden State” comes from). As late as the 1960's if you lived west of Route 35 in Ocean Township, your family was involved in farming.

Dave Osborn and his sister Mary are from a Wayside farming family that goes back generations. Dave may have been an Ocean Township Police officer, but he still farmed the families land in western Ocean.  

Dave and Mary sit down with our Hometown Histories crew to discuss farming in Ocean Township and the many families who once worked the land to make a living.

Marge Edelson, Museum Trustee is the host of this episode. Dallas Grove is Executive Producer; Produced by Ted Dellinger and Joe Bove; Music is by Bill Madden.

The Township of Ocean Historical Museum is a 501(c)(3) charity, and a 100% volunteer organization, that tells the story of Coastal Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA.
