Long Branch Lakes Gets It. Community Gives Back From What It Was Given
Long Branch Lakes is utilizing what’s already there for sustainable, responsible stewardship to the land many have come to enjoy for many years and will enjoy for many years to come.

This is just one of many ways Mr. Cash and the 4,500 acre Long Branch Lakes is utilizing what’s already there for sustainable, responsible stewardship to the land many have come to enjoy for many years and will enjoy for many years to come.
One of the larger undertakings, was utilizing two of the original barns from The Singleton Dairy Farm (now part of Long Branch Lakes), and refurbishing them to be the centerpieces of the 1,000 Acre Equestrian Village. Rather than tearing down to make for new structures, Mr. Cash and his partners Rick Klewein and Andy Cash worked with Lorri Hayward of Hayward Designs, LTD to preserve the essence of the original structures and used much of the original barn wood in the interior of the storage barn.
Surrounding the dairy farm was acre after acre of grazing pasture, which has now been converted for the diets of horses rather than dairy cows. The hay is an orchard grass and clover mix, giving the mature and younger horses higher amounts of protein and other nutrients, which cuts down on their need for grain. Not only is the mix monitored for nutritional content on a regular basis, what is not used for Long Branch Lakes is distributed to local farmers to use as feed for their livestock.
But it’s not just the large projects that make the property so “giving”. It’s the smaller one too. Trees that have to be cut down on the property to make way for roads, etc. are being used as light poles throughout the development. Land that has to be cleared for three planned lakes will be timbered, and logged for lumber to use in the region. Lakes already on the property are replenished with indigenous fishes and carefully monitored for water quality. This monitoring along with fish feeders placed throughout the community ensure a thriving ecosystem.
Call it a conscious effort to use the land you are given, or just call it common sense. Either way you look at it, Long Branch Lakes gets it.
