Reiff Farm is a historic home and farm complex located in Oley Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The main farmhouse is a 2 1/2-story, five bay by two bay, Georgian-style dwelling built of fieldstone. The property includes a 2 1/2-story, log house built between 1742 and 1800, but possibly as early as 1709, along with a variety of outbuildings. Outbuildings include an implement shed and workshop, pig barn, combination spring house and smokehouse, summer kitchen and bake oven, ice house, and combination butcher shop and blacksmith shop (1742). Six of the outbuildings have red clay tile roofs.[2]
