Black Pheasant Farm ("BPF") is on Route 22 in the Town of Amenia - just over the Dover Plains Town Line. Located North of Tinkertown Road and South of Butts Hollow Road on the east side of Route 22. The BPF has over 100 acres of tillable, prime soil land, 20 acres of agricultural support land for buildings, grain storage, equipment, etc. and 70 acres of woods and fen along the Ten Mile River, a Class A trout stream and tributary of the Housatonic River.
The BPF got its name when, during an initial visit to the farm before ever being purchased, a black bird ran out from the cornfield. It looked like a pheasant in shape, but, in coloring, it was all wrong. This pheasant was totally black. Upon later discovery, an albino pheasant is rare but a black or melanistic pheasant is the most rare of all. Hence, the farm name was born.
