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.
