“Our Farm is located just a stone’s throw from Route 146—between Worcester, MA and Providence, RI. We are down the hill from Purgatory Chasm State Park. Many come just to relax and enjoy an ice cream cone on our large outdoor deck overlooking Swans Pond. Others spend time with friends on our premier miniature golf course and finding adventure in our 5 acre corn maze in the Fall.

We welcome you to our family farm!”
