Appleton Farms is a historic site and one of The United States' original 5 working farms. A trip here is a marvelous way to expose children to the realities, work and pleasures of an old fashion farm.

This land is owned and maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. There is an extensive system of hiking trails which used to be carriage paths. One can discover historic plaques and a granite column from an old Harvard College Library. It is dog friendly and a great birding area as well.

This is a beautiful refuge for the spirit and the soul. Walk almost any time of the year through the rolling meadows. Take your time, bring a friend, and enjoy your stroll. Support the Trustees of the Reservation too!

Owned and maintained by the Trustees of Reservation, Appleton Farms is the oldest continually running farm in America.

There's cows and chickens and they make and sell milk, yogurt, cheese, and eggs in a small on-site store.... More
