Historic Longstreet Farm Photography Location

The Historic Longstreet Farm is a living history farm that recreates the agricultural life of the 1890s. Interpreters dress in period costume and perform typical year-round farming and domestic actives including seasonal planting and harvesting of crops and raising livestock. The farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The farm was purchased by the Monmouth County Park System in 1967 to preserve the county’s rural past. The farm opened to the public in 1972 as Historic Longstreet Farm.

Longstreet Farm is a relatively complete example of a typical nineteenth-century farm created by Dutch settlers in New Jersey. The farmstead consists of a 14-room Federal-style farmhouse, a Dutch barn, and a collection of nineteenth-century farm outbuildings.

Historic Longstreet Farm is open daily year-round, free of charge.

The park offers several areas of interest to do photography. For a New Jersey location, you can come up with some pretty dynamic photos if you give it some effort.

Most of your shots here will be done in shutter priority since there are many moving animals and people to photograph. The staff will happily allow you to take their pictures, and the animals don’t seem to mind either.

When staying in New Jersey and photographing this area, you should stay at The Colts Neck Inn. The Inn offers large, immaculate rooms in a beautiful building with great atmosphere. The service is impeccable.

Photography Information

Lens: Wide angle for wildlife and zoom lens for the farm.

When to Go: Any time of year but midweek is best offseason. There are a lot of visitors at this park on the weekends.

Camera Settings:

Aperture Priority – There are flowers around the park and you might want to use aperture priority when trying to blur the background for the bokeh effect.

Shutter Priority – If you have moving subjects such as the birds flying by you want to shoot in shutter priority to be sure they come out clear. When people are walking through, shoot at 1/250th sec. and adjust the ISO accordingly. If individuals or animals are running by, up it to 1/500th sec. and if it’s a bright sunny day, go as high as 1/1000th sec. to get the birds crystal clear as they fly by here.

Manual Mode – To do your long exposure running, milky water shots you have to use a tripod.  There is only a small amount of water here and it is usually still. To read more about shooting running waters go to our waterfall page for a detailed explanation.

See our How to Shoot Waterfall Photography Page for more details.
