Rolling grasslands, grazing livestock, stone walls, extensive forests, and historic farm buildings are part of Appleton Farms' 1,000-acre pastoral landscape that sits a mere 25 miles north of Boston. Founded in 1636 by Samuel Appleton and farmed by nine successive generations of Appleton's, Appleton Farms is the oldest continuously operating farm in America. Meet the cows, visit our dairy store (with our very own milk and cheese!), join our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), take a cooking class, and more!
