where wonder happens
Powisset Farm
metro-west Dover, MA
109 acres

This vibrant working farm is a local treasure. Explore its loop trail to take in the surrounding woodlands, fields, and wetlands.

What makes Powisset Farm a special place?
Powisset’s open fields and cluster of farm buildings make up a scenic, pastoral landscape that is a rare treasure within the Greater Boston area. Given its history of active agricultural use dating back more than 300 years, the farm is an invaluable cultural resource. Today, The Trustees continues that legacy through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program at Powisset Farm, along with a vibrant barnyard, farmstand, and teaching kitchen.

Stroll down the farm lane, say hello to the barnyard animals, and admire the rows of vegetables and herbs. Take the loop trail beyond the cultivated land to an upland oak forest, a pair of brooks, vernal pools, and wooded wetlands, and gaze across furrowed croplands and thick hay fields attracting white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and grassland-nesting bobolinks.

Mowed trails through the hay fields link to adjacent Hale Reservation, and Noanet Woodlands lie across the street.

Trails
An easy loop trail, less than a mile long extends beyond the farmstead past woodlands and wetlands before returning to the barnyard. A trail spur leads into adjacent 1,200-acre Hale Reservation.

When to Visit
Trails: Year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. Allow a minimum of 1 hour.

Please Note
We maintain an electric deer fence around all of our cultivated fields. Please assume that the fence is on at all times.
