The Wayland farm was once a dairy farm and the home of Clayton and Flora Williams. The original barn was destroyed during the 1938 hurricane and then replaced with the present barn. The Williams sold the farm to Ed Clark, former First Selectman, and his wife Christine who for many years held horse shows in the field north of the house and operated a tack shop attached to the house.
The Waylands purchased the farm in 1976. Starting with sheep as a 4H project in the late 1970’s, Howard, a retired EB Electrical Engineer, gradually switched to Hereford beef animals and now maintains a herd of between 30 and 40 animals. They are sold either at auction or to private parties as breeding stock, feeders or as finished freezer beef. They are pastured in season. In the winter months, and when pasture is low, they are fed hay made on the green and on several neighbors’ land along with corn and grass silage purchased from local farmers.
