1950s farm outside village

Just wondering


#1 Dec 29, 2007
Is there any old timer from Averill Park that
remembers a farm called I believe the Bonnie
Acre Farm? It was a dairy farm owned by two
bachelor brothers named Harvey and Leo Perrault
(not sure of last name and its spelling). As a
young child in the early fifties I was living with a relative who lived on the farm property
and worked for the brothers. This was the happiest time in my childhood and I have fond
memories of Leo and Harvey. They must have passed
on at this point. I last saw them in 1963 and at
that time they had added a store to their house which offered fresh meat and other food staples.
I would appreciate any information or memories that some older citizen of Averill Park might
have. Thank you

It was called Bon Acres. There is a mobile home park on part of the property and a new development is planned for the rest of the property.
