Welcome

The Friends of Adams Farm is a group of area residents dedicated to the preservation of Adams Farm. The Adams Farm property includes approximately 365 acres of town-owned land, additional acreage held in adjacent land conservation trusts, and land owned by the New England Forestry Foundation and the Norfolk County Agricultural School, for a total of over 700 acres open to the public for low-impact recreation.

By maintaining the farm in its natural state, the Friends of Adams Farm hope to foster a greater appreciation of the outdoors among local residents and impress upon them the importance of protecting the open spaces we have left for future generations.

Adams Farm Event Calendar

For a complete list of events at the Farm this fall, go to the “News and Events” page and click on the “Adams Farm Events” tab at the top of the page.  There you will find a list of the times and dates of all the events currently scheduled at Adams Farm.  If you’re interested in holding an event at the Farm, click on the link to the Application for Use at the top of this page.  Please keep in mind that since Adams Farm is a town-owned property, you should allow at least 3 weeks for events to be approved by the Adams Farm Committee and the Board of Selectmen.  If you plan to serve alcoholic beverages at your event, you will also need apply to the Selectmen for a one-day liquor license.

All about Bees

In June, Community gardener and beekeeper Bill Kiggen gave a presentation at Adams Farm on honeybees, beekeeping and the role of bees in pollination.  Bees have inhabited the earth for millions of years, and today there are over 20,000 species of bees in the world.  To learn more about honeybees and how important they are to maintaining our food supply, click here to go to “News and Events” for the highlights of Bill’s presentation, “All about Bees”.
