Armstrong Farms is an historically prominent 200-year-old family farm still operating a large purebred Black Angus cattle herd on 1000 acres. We are a designated Pennsylvania Century Farm, (presented by the Pa. Historical Museum Commission, the Govenor of Pa. and the Secretary of Agriculture) in continuous family ownership since its acquisition in 1816. The Allens continue their farming heritage by managing one of the largest herds of purebred cattle in the northeastern US. This unspoiled acreage allows anyone an opportunity to experience relaxation, romance, and to learn about the present farming operation through observation and hands on farming chores.
The farm is located only 45 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, in southeast Butler County 2 1/2 miles from the National Historic District of Saxonburgand offers award winning accommodations. Nestled in one of the last remaining pieces of the regional pie that is still rural, we have a perfect setting for special over-night stays, corporate retreats, outdoor recreation and the most perfect wedding anyone's imagination can create.
We offer accommodations in 8 different venues. We have the Andrew Room in the Main 1816 Farm House and Drake's Guesthouse, also located at the Main Farm. Westminster Preserve serves two locations: The Bonnie House and The Love Cottage. The Alyson Anne Cottage is located at our Alyson Anne Farm. The Fieldstone House is conveniently located next to the Fieldstone barn. Two suites (Higgenbothem Town Aire and The Kristan Alyssa), located in the Historic Saxonburg District, accommodate guests seeking both small town atmosphere and the farm setting at Armstrong. Finally, the Greenspace Cabin offers a primitive overnight camping retreat.
Here "GREEN" is not a novel catch phrase, but rather a way of life that began in our family almost 200 years ago. It is our mission to share with others this beautiful and relaxing way of country life.
