The Trustees of Reservations own and manage seven vibrant, working farms in Massachusetts: Appleton Farms, Chestnut Hill Farm, The FARM Institute, Moose Hill Farm, Moraine Farm, Powisset Farm, and Weir River Farm. Each farm has its own particular fresh flavor, and its own unique attributes, including iconic red New England barn buildings, miles of rolling grassland and trails, grazing livestock, and plucky wandering chickens.
While farmland in the nation is rapidly disappearing, we consider preserving this piece of our collective history a crucial part of our mission. To encourage more folks to eat locally, we have grown thriving Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs at five of our farms. Some of our farms sell site-grown produce and meat, and Appleton Farms recently launched a boutique dairy operation featuring fresh milk, farmstead cheese, and yogurt.
