ROSE HILL POULTRY AND DAIRY FARM is owned by E. L. Ferris. Postoffice address, Poplar Ridge, N. Y. This farm consists of ninety acres, located on Ridge Road, six miles from Aurora and sixteen from Auburn; from King Ferry four miles. There is an abundance of fruit at "Rose Hill." Poultry and dairying are the chief resources. The building improvements are such as reflect credit upon its proprietor; they are both modern and convenient. Mr. Ferris takes much pride in his poultry, which consists of White Leghorns, Black Minorcas and other varieties, keeping a large number on hand for breeding purposes. Running water is supplied to the buildings and fields, and a water trough is placed for the benefit of the public; there is an excellent timber lot of nine acres. S. Wheeler was a previous owner, of whom the farm was purchased by Mr. Ferris in 1894. Mr. Ferris is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1829. He married Miss M. A. Jackson in 1854; she was a native of England. Their family consists of a son and daughter; the son assists his father in the management of the farm.
