Relax, contemplate, reflect
Stay a while, pick and choose.”

I am a naturalized Brit, living in the US for some 40 years, first in California, then New Jersey. Limetree is a nickname given to me, derived from the moniker Limey, given to Brits in general.
Beer has been central to my life. In 1992 I co-founded Ale Street News, a free brewspaper that chronicled the rise of craft beer in the US and around the world. After a 27-year run, the brewspaper's lifeblood – print advertising – dried up, and I decided to move on and delve into artistic pursuits. I do not claim to be an expert in all these fields, but I hope that my attempts to create may inspire others to live a little more creatively.
In line with artistry, I sometimes feel like I took the vow of poverty. So, if you like what you see or feel any empathy, encouragement is welcome in comment or indeed in donation.

Just as this website hopes to be somewhat of an oasis from the information overload that we suffer in our daily lives so is the Oasis Farm a place of relaxation and enjoyment.
With the trailer I purchased a few years ago and parked on the farm with owner Dan Doyle's blessing I have pledged my support to his vision of The Oasis as a haven for farming and recreation – Fungriculture as he calls it.
Recreation comes in the form of Disc Golf with 18 holes of baskets and chains spread over 45 acres of unspoiled meadows and woodlands.
Snufftown Farm Brewery is under construction to offer lubrication and sustenance to visitors. Located in Warwick, NY The Oasis hosts several sustainable farming projects and presents a variety of workshops.
