The Fox Barn Market and Winery

About

We have a unique setting within our restored antique barn for you to enjoy a Farm Market & Winery. Taste wines at the bar then enjoy your favorite with a snack to eat under an umbrella on the outdoor patio. Enjoy the great selection of wine themed items & take your favorite home. Select fresh produce in season & choose from a variety of specialty foods. Our family is proud to be part of a rich farming community for 5 generations. Through the years we have seen many changes and are excited about the future. The basis of our business is the care of 2000 acres of land that is ¾ planted to fruit with a little asparagus and the remaining is wood lots that are managed by a forester. Our Farm Market was introduced in 2005 & the Winery added in 2008. This has been quite an adventure & we enjoy sharing it with you.

History

Along came an opportunity that I half-heartedly took in August 2005, a roadside stand selling peaches. A few years later in 2008 came the vision and passion for what I could be, a winery. But way before any of this came a rich farming history.

My family has been farming in Oceana County for five generations. My parents, Michael & Lorraine Chase along with my grandparents, Miles & Lena Chase, were frozen food processors (Chase Farms, Inc.) and fruit & vegetable farmers. My great-grandparents, Elwin & Zoa Chase were dairy & grain farmers as well as my great-great grandparents Cynthia & Ernest Chase.

I spent my childhood around many aspects of farming. From picking asparagus to packaging fresh cut zucchini. Many of the tasks I did not like but am grateful now for all it has taught me about how the food we grow gets to our table.

In 1991 I married Todd Fox and he too has a rich farming history in Oceana County. His parents Bruce & Kathy manage and operate the family’s 2100 acres (N.J. Fox & Sons, Inc.). His grandparents, Roy & Ruth managed operations prior. His great-grandparents, N.J. & Edith Fox founded the company in 1947. Todd works alongside his father in a business that encompasses 1700 acres of farmland in production, tart cherry processing plant, fresh apple packaging facility and trucking company.
