Having been in the Gilliland family for over 60 years, Gillbrook Farms was originally built in 1840 as part of the Beck family farm and has been a fully operational, working farm for 150 years. The traditional bank barn is a historic style where the structure is nestled into the hillside.

The name “Gillbrook” was derived from the Gilliland family name and the brook that runs through the farm. 32096_433174495309_1720868_nThe property was renamed by John L. Gilliland who owned the farm in the 1950s. “Gillbrook” was also the official prefix for the cattle bred and raised on the farm — some of the top Holsteins in the United States.

Wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate the many area attractions including one of the nation’s leading fishing destinations, Spruce Creek.

The Farm is also situated at the base of the Allegheny Mountain Range and is located 25 minutes from  Pennsylvania State University.
