Fodor's Expert Review Watson Farm

Jamestown Farm/Ranch

This historic New England farm has been in operation since 1789. Tenant farmers operate it, using sustainable practices to raise grass-fed beef and lamb, and producing wool blankets for local markets. They also host educational programs, like the annual Sheep Shearing Day on the second Saturday in May, when you can visit the baby lambs, see the flock being shorn by local shearers, and watch spinning and weaving demonstrations. You can also stroll 2 miles of trails and view seasonal farm activities.
