What does Steintal Hof Mean?

After purchasing a small herd of dairy goats we were tasked with creating a farm name. We had never really considered naming our own farm at this point as we don’t own property. We graciously live on my in-law’s farm and buying property at this point in our lives isn’t an option yet.

It seems as if every single place in Glen Rock is named Glen-something, Rock-something, or Valley-something.

Before we got married I moved to the Glen Rock area to live closer to my now husband. It seemed as if every single road had Valley in it’s name. It made for a very confusing ride home from the grocery store.

We wanted something that honored our rich Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, but also fit the area with a little creativity.

With some help from my husband’s German friend, Steintal Hof was born. Steintal Hof means Stoney Valley Farm in German. Maybe we weren’t so creative after all but we love it!
