The History of Dewing Farm
Once known as Hillside Farm
The Dewing Farm on Route 187 in Orwell Township, Pennsylvania was first settled and farmed by white settlers in 1811 when Nathaniel Chubbuck was the 2nd family to arrive in North Orwell from Connecticut. This Endless Mountains Region of Pennsylvania was one of the last settled areas because of the enduring stronghold the Susquehannock Native Americans had in the region. The farm borders the Wysox Creek, where there is much historical evidence the Native Americans thrived. Nathaniel’s son, Lyman (known as LS) Chubbuck farmed 160 acres of the farm in 1907, which was then known on a map of 1868 as “Hillside Farm”.
The Farm Today
Mat grew up a 5th generation farmer with his family on a 500-acre Century Farm 12 miles away. Janice grew up with her family on the 200-acre farm bordering the northern edge of Dewing Farm, where her father still lives today. It was always a dream to own a farm of their own. To their delight they were able to purchase the 180-acre farm in 2015. Mat & Janice live just 2 miles away on a smaller 10-acre farm.
