From family farm to family community.
Tinker Farms - Upper Makefield, Pennsylvania
From 1949 to 1979, the 250-acre Tinker Farms property operated as a working family farm raising cattle and Yorkshire pigs with several fields dedicated to corn and soybean, providing feed for the animals.
Then from 1979 through 1989, the farm was re-purposed as a landscape and tree farm until finally, in 1989, the property was subdivided into lots for the development of a single family home community, featuring custom built houses.
Thomas K. Fischer planned and developed 150 acres of the property, overseeing and actively managing the site work, planning and design of the land use. He also managed the architectural deed restrictions and construction of a few of the homes.
Today the original Tinker Farms property hosts 19 custom built, single-family homes with 50 acres set aside, in perpetuity, as protected “Green Spaces”.
