A Special Announcement

I wrote this announcement on Facebook and Instagram and wanted to share it here, too.

The 16th of each month is special for Jeff and me (Elise), as the day marks how many months we have been married. So it only seemed fitting that today be the day for a Special Announcement.

As we began our new life together, we knew we wanted to farm. We also knew that we wanted to both preserve my farm heritage and incorporate Jeff’s specialties, creating a new path with an exciting future.

So today, we wanted to share the name we have chosen for our farm and agritourism endeavors:


The name reflects the heritage of Woodland Farms and Strathmore Commons Farm. “Sylvan” refers to a wooded area or a spirit of the woods. A sylvan person lives in a woodland region and is shaped by trees. “Sylvan” also can mean “pleasantly rural or pastoral.” The word “more” (meaning “big” or “large”) is often seen in place names in Scotland: Braemore, Aviemore, Craigmore, Strathmore.

The best of both worlds meets in Sylvanmore.

The name change will be reflected on our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram) and on our new website, which I’ll link to in another post.

Sylvanmore will be hosting its first agritourism event in October, so keep an eye out for details later this week!

Thank you all for joining us on this journey. We can’t wait to see what happens!
