Welcome

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.

Full Moon Cross Country Skiing

This winter’s first Full Moon Cross Country Skiing will be held on Sunday, January 4, with an alternate date of Sunday, January 11.  The February outing will be held on Sunday, February 1, with an alternate date of Sunday, February 8.

We’ll meet at 7pm at the barn.  As always, we will go at a leisurely pace and the outing will last about two hours.  Snowshoers are welcome to join us and new questions for Full Moon Trivia have already been researched.  If there is no snow or if heavy rain is forecast on the first date, the outing will be rescheduled to the alternate date. 

If you have any questions about these outings, please contact Gary Riggott at 4riggott@comcast.net or 508-451-0905.
