Lusscroft Farm in Wantage Township, New Jersey. The 578 acre farm was built by businessman James Turner between 1914 and 1930. The farm was setup to be a model dairy farm and scientific agriculture research done here included the very first artificial insemination of livestock. Decades later the farm ended up being used by the local 4-H club as a Summer camp. Since then the farm has fell into disrepair and it is now administered by the New Jersey State Park Service. The farm grounds and some of its buildings are used for annual festivals, equestrian events and some fundraisers that aim to raise enough money to preserve and maintain the aging and decaying farm structures and maintain its grounds.
