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.

Moonlight Cross Country Skiing at Adams Farm

Join us for a cross country ski adventure by moonlight at the Farm this winter!  We’ll meet at the barn at 7pm during the full moon in January and February.  Bring your cross country skis or snow shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

Gary Riggott, head of the Walpole Trails Committee, will lead the way to the back meadow and challenge you to a Full Moon Trivia Contest before heading back to the barn.  The entire outing will last about two hours.

If there is no snow or if heavy rain is forecast on the first date, the outing will be rescheduled to the alternate date.  Please note:  No dogs are allowed.
