The Burt Homestead Farm has been in continuous operation by our family for over 200 years.  The farm is located on “The Hurricane”  in the northwestern part of the Town of Norway in Herkimer County.  We are about 4 miles north of Cold Brook, 1/2  mile off State Route 8 and approximately 20 miles from Utica.  

This section of Norway derives its name from a "micro-burst" or "hurricane" in the mid-1750's.  By the 1790's, the early settlers found a large area where trees had been blown down or uprooted.  This made settlement easier since part of their work in clearing the land was already done.
