The farm has been family-owned for more than 10 generations and is one of the oldest family farms in New England. Efforts to conserve this land span several decades and have ensured the rural character of the farm is preserved.
1640s New England Farm is distinctively charming. The farm's unique elements are reminiscent of its historical nature. The rustic barn adorns the entrance to the beautiful field. The field features scenic views of Lincoln Hill and sprawling green lawns surrounded by wooded lands.
