Rolling grasslands, grazing livestock, agricultural fields, stone walls, and historic farm buildings are part of this 1,000-acre pastoral landscape – a rare glimpse into New England’s agricultural past. A gift of Colonel Francis R. Appleton, Jr., and his wife Joan, Appleton Farms is one of the oldest continuously operating farms in the country, established and maintained by nine generations of the Appleton family.

Join us for a guided tour to explore some of this very special place and experience its beauty and history firsthand. We will meet at the farmhouse affectionally called the “Old House,” the center of life at the farm for many decades, and make our way over the railroad tracks and through the idyllic fields and pastures beyond.

Please note: Participants will be asked to follow Covid-19 related guidelines, including wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. If you are experiencing symptoms, please do not attend the tour.

Space is limited for this event and pre-registration is strongly recommended. 

We will meet at the Farm Offices building.
