Jeep Farm

by Chris (Copperswilly) Reinthaler

Note: We were sorry to hear from Bill Capes that Terry Ackert, owner of the "Jeep Farm", passed away on 20 March 2013. Terry's family would like to sell all the Jeeps. As of May 2015, they will open up the farm by appointment on Saturdays for anyone who would like to pull parts or buy complete parts vehicles. To make an appointment, contact Jill at 845-464-3785. -- Derek Redmond

These are pictures of Terry Ackert's "Jeep Farm" southwest of Shokan, New York, at 144 Grassy Ridge Road, Olivebridge NY. The Jeeps and Jeep parts are all for sale. The trail up the mountain is a bit rough and steep. Being up there in 2008, walking around with my Mom and kids, made me worry a little because Terry kept talking about the bears that live in and around some of these Jeeps.

CJ-3B find
This is the '61 3B that I bought -- it's in OK shape... it has fire but hasn't popped over yet.

Another 3B
This is an early 3B but it didn't have any plates, just wasp nests under the hood.

The Jeeps go down and around the corner. This is where the bears were, so with the kids we stayed away.

More Jeeps
There were bear claw scratches on these Jeeps .

The kids
That's my Mom and my two boys behind this Tuxedo Park.

The grilles
I thought this picture was very cool. Note the stack of windshields under the grilles.

Mail Jeep with 4-wheel drive.

Rusted and busted but restorable.

Foward Control
Nice Forward Control... really good shape. He had about 6 or 7 Forward Controls.

3B frame
Just Jeeps in every corner of this place.


Thanks to Chris for the photographs. By the way, the "Jeep Farm" is not far from the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival. -- Derek Redmond
