Roam from pasture and planted fields through a small woodland before emerging at the edge of a serene salt marsh near the head of the tidal Little River.
What makes Cornell Farm a special place?
This South Coast jewel of cultivated uplands, mixed forest, and pristine marsh linked by a salt creek to Buzzards Bay was cherished by a single family for more than 150 years.
This deep connection to the land was passed down by the Cornells through five generations – and now it can be appreciated by the public. Thanks to efforts by the family, The Trustees, and Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT), Cornell Farm not only continues as a familiar and active agricultural landscape, but enjoys an expanded role as ecological, recreational, and educational resource for all who visit.
Observe the natural wonders of the growing season, from planting to harvest. Explore a trail that descends through woodlands of pine and oak before emerging at a serene salt marsh at the head of the Little River. Or just find a quiet place to call your own for a while, stretch out, and be thankful for a property that so naturally merges the community’s past and present.
An old farm road and footpaths extend westward from the farmstead through a forest that leads you to the edge of a broad marshland at the head of the Little River.
