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.
