History of the farm:

Schartner Farms began in the 1880's when Joseph Schartner and his brother Julius left the Hamlet of Scharten to embark upon a new life in America. Each brother settled on a different Schartner farm, growing fruits, vegetables, and apples. The second generation of Schartners moved to Rhode Island in the 1920's and rented the land on Rt. 2 in Exeter. Here they started a dairy and milk delivery. The second generation of Schartners started an amusement park called Schartner's Kiddyland close by, which was one of the largest in the area. The amusement park flourished until the Colonel Rodman Hwy was built and the beach traffic dwindled, which caused the Schartners to close the park.
